 Sergio Herman (1970) has inherited his love for cookery from his father, with whom he worked side by side at the ‘Oud Sluis’ restaurant for several years, before taking it over entirely in 1990. There, he brought to life the fresh high-quality products from the polders and the waters of Zeeland, thereby laying the foundation of what would become an unparalleled ‘wow’ kitchen, and would eventually earn him 3 Michelin stars. In 2013, Sergio decided to close the doors of the ‘Oud Sluis’ restaurant, because it was limiting him in his quest for development and evolution. In 2010, he opened his second business: Pure C Bar & Restaurant in Cadzand-Bad, and in 2014 he opened his latest innovative, contemporary restaurant, ‘The Jane’, a former chapel of a military hospital in Antwerp. With this latest project, Sergio proved once and for all, that food really is his religion. Shop his collection of wine glasses here

 

“It is often in the slow meditative drawing proces that the unexpected happens and an idea, or a dream takes form on the paper “

Danish illustrator and designer Sofie Børsting is based in Copenhagen and educated from the Danish Design School in 2003. After many years of working in the design industry she finally followed her dream and created an illustrated line of products in 2011. They quickly took off, and are now sold in some of the finest designshops in Scandinavia and around the world.

The very detailed artwork is created from a combination of carefully hand drawn botanical elements, collage and gouache.

She desribes her work as Graphic poetry with a hint of fairy tale.
