Priceless


At the Design Market I saw this beautiful worn drawing table with chair.
While we were busy admiring, two Japanese men bought it.
When we talked to the seller, he told us he once had 30 of these tables.
The table was especially designed for the Academy of Architecture in Gent
by Willy Van Der Meeren. Since the seller was specialised in Flemish design,
 he bought the whole lot. When I asked him about the price,
he explained to me "The fewer I have left the higher the asking price.
This specimen was sold for 3.000 euros today". Ka-ching!!!
