Edward Van Vliet began his career as a fabric designer before moving into interior design and, ultimately, luxury hotel design, always displaying a special focus on textile research and the use of fabrics. His work – be it graphic art, lighting or interior design – always combines traditional design with industrial processes in a mixture of high-tech and natural materials. An eclectic, original decorative design style in which he mixes elements from different cultures and deliberately avoids making statements. Edward Van Vliet's interiors and products are luxurious, exclusive, they are full of character and create a very pleasant atmosphere which is immediately perceived in the reception areas, foyers and bars of the hotels he designs.
