Claire Bataille (1940) and Paul Ibens (1939) studied architecture at the Van de Velde Institute in Antwerp. They set up an architectural and interior design practice in there in 1968, and it has been thriving for 42 years. They do interiors for offices, commercial buildings and private houses. In addition, they design articles that sell widely in international markets. Most of their architectural work has been in Belgium, though they have on occasion worked elsewhere in Europe and in the US. They were both good friends of Jef Verheyen, whom they met in 1964.
