Igor Dieryck


The YESSIR collection, made for his master collection at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, is inspired by a reflection on the place of hotel staff within their establishment. This was the blueprint for the newer and updated model, as part of our first project of our STUDIO.


About the collection…
Through firsthand experience of working at a reception of a hotel, Igor saw the wide variety of complex and subtle relations between the different protagonists sharing the space of a hotel lobby.

The main objective of Igor’s collection is to highlight those who, too often, are ignored and concealed by a system that does not give them the place to be powerful. The eyewear element of his collection is inspired by the shape of a champagne glass, served by a waiter. The 2cm depth of the frames translates the metaphorical distance between the waiter and the customer whose eyes often go straight to the champagne not to the person serving it.

The eyewear becomes a detail in highlighting the overall dialogue of his master collection, the incorporation of the interaction between the waiter and customer.

With our STUDIO project, we’ve revisited the design of these glasses and focussed on comfort in wear, next to other aspects from the producing process.
