AKT MAGAZINE is an independent magazine founded by Jessy Van Durme & Piet-Albert Goethals. At Akt, we search for greatness in a small corner, abstraction in the mass, with a keen eye for timeless aesthetics and a nod to Belgium's creative landscape of architecture, design, fashion, food and beyond.
In issue two we have encounters with Linde Freya Tangelder from Destroyers/Builders, interior architect Arjaan De Feyter, designers Pierric De Coster & Pieter Maes, who works and lives in Paris. We travel to the Moroccan desert where we have a conversation and a shoot with LRNCE. Musician Trixie Whitley visits our studio to have a talk on existentialism and music. We dig deeper on the value on daily rituals and visit the atelier of Michaël Verheyden. We discover unknown treasures on Belgian marbles with Ben Storms and the abstract jewelry of Dominique Labordery. We meet painter Pieter Vermeersch in his atelier in Turin to talk on his work process. Chef Benoit Dewitte shows us how to prepare a Michelin starred sandwich, and KAAN Architecten translates the meaning of mourning into architecture.
