MANIERA

Summer residency

Dumortierlaan 8, Knokke, (BE)

 
IN HUIB HOSTE’S
DE BEIR HOUSE
 
 
Thursday to Sunday, 2 – 7 pm: without reservation (max. 10 visitors, max. 30 minutes)
Or by appointment: T + 32 (0)494 787 290
 
 
This summer, MANIERA is taking up residence in the De Beir House in Knokke for a unique presentation of its collection. This iconic house, designed by the avant-garde architect Huib Hoste, was one of the very first examples of Modernism in Belgium. The house is furnished entirely with key pieces from the MANIERA collection. Every series is on show, from the earliest, by OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen, to the latest, by Bernard Dubois and Isaac Reina. This is the first time since the gallery was established in 2014 that an overview of all the series that have been produced is being presented.
 
MANIERA has a penchant for pioneering houses. In 2015, the gallery’s second exhibition was held in Henry Van de Velde’s Hotel Wolfers. The artist Richard Venlet created furnishings inspired by the history and architecture of this modernist gem. A year later, the designer Jonathan Muecke spent a month in Juliaan Lampens’ brutalist Van Wassenhove house to design a series of objects for it.
 
The De Beir House – aka the Black House – was completed in 1925 and is a Belgian interpretation of De Stijl, a trend that originated in the Netherlands. While Mondrian, Van Doesburg and Rietveld used lines and planes, Hoste worked in volumes. Its characteristics include extreme simplicity, a focus on functionality, a pure geometry and a ubiquity of colour.
 
 
From August 08 to 16, MANIERA is having guests at the De Beir House. Pierre Marie Giraud is specialized in contemporary decorative arts. His eponymous gallery showcases international artists, craftsmen, and designers, with an emphasis on ceramics, glass, and Japanese crafts. Since the early 80s, Thierry Struvay’s keen eye has always discovered exceptional artisans who exel in various crafts such as goldsmithing, jewellery making, weaving, leather work or glass blowing. Both galleries add various refined objects to the MANIERA furniture to make the De Beir house even more lively.
