There is something about the beauty of timeless design that transcends its age. A well-thought-out object can still appear new and inspired, even decades after it was first conceptualised. The purchase of quality furniture should therefore be a lifelong investment, which can then be passed on from one generation to the next. Longevity and quality are two key words that resonate like none other for Johan 24 | Issue 28 | April 2016
Lenaerts. He and Dirk Buytaert are the co-owners of G4 AGENCY, a high-end furniture and lighting agency based in Antwerp. A quick overview of their stunning products reveals a collection of original, top-quality designs that appear modern yet ageless. Lenaerts: “We specialise in timeless design. We don’t offer products that will be outdated by the next season. The next generation also has to be able to enjoy the designs, not just because their aes-
thetic won’t go out of style, but also because they are so well made.” Created from beautiful materials that are handcrafted to perfection, these objects are made to last. Exquisite marble, alluring bronze, elegant glasswork and splendid types of wood are some of the typical materials used. “Our focus is completely on the high-end segment. They have to be top quality and expertly made. Most of our products are manufactured by hand to ensure it is done right,” he adds.
