Design Vlaanderen promotes contemporary, high-quality and innovative design from Flanders, Belgium. Each year they also present the Henry van de Velde Awards to reward a successful career. They asked us to make a documentary film about Paul Verhaert to highlight and support his award instead of the usual catalogue.
Our film crew followed this influential product designer from Antwerp and discovered a great untold story. In the final stages of the shoot we travelled to Spain to board 'De Nieuwe Maan' a historical replica craft. Capturing Paul Verhaert on his craft seeking new opportunities on the endless sea was the perfect setting to tell his inspiring story.
"The enthusiasm of the Cnocspot people enables them to get deeply involved in the subject of the job on hand, a recipe that delivers great results. Nothing then good memories on our collaboration."
