“When we launched COLLECTIBLE more than four years ago, we would never have dreamt it could generate so much enthusiasm around contemporary collectible design,” said Clélie Debehault and Liv Vaisberg. Debehault is an art and design consultant based in Paris and Brussels, while Vaisberg is an Antwerp-based international artistic director. “The current interest around unique pieces and limited editions seems to increase every year and we are proud to be part of creating this new narrative for collectible design,” the duo said.
