Sep Verboom

In 2018 we were commissioned to design trophies for Belgium television channel (VRT) book awards "LangZullenWeLezen".

We worked with stonemasons of our social partner Compaan to create 10 unique sculptures made out of French sandstone and brass finishing.

"LangZullenWeLezen" is the VRT's reading promotion project, replacing other previous book prizes such as the Gouden Uil. The jury chose 10 excellent books in 10 categories. After that, the readers could vote: nearly 10,000 voted.

The winners were presented in the program "Van Gils & guests" on channel One.


Sep Verboom

The Belgian creative Sep Verboom (1990) is at once designer and social entrepreneur, less concerned with the objectification of the result, more with the context in which it takes place.

‘Too often we measure success and profit in terms of economic values. What happened to the importance of people’s well-being and health of our environment?’

Through his Livable® platform, Verboom brings together partners as diverse as their geographies: from the Peruvian Amazon to Indonesia, and from local governments or commercial companies to NGO’s.

Verboom graduated with a degree in Industrial Design (HOWEST) and in Sustainable Development from (VIVES) both in Kortrijk (BE).

His collaborative approach has been internationally recognised, with numerous expositions and awards. In 2018 Sep Verboom won the Belgian Henry Van De Velde Award for Young Talent. In 2020 his commitment to socially engaged design earned him the prestigious title ‘Designer of the Year’ by Biennale Interieur.
