Leo Aerts/Alinea

Angelo Totem, a design by interior architect Leo Aerts/Alinea, received an award in the “household” category. For Leo Aerts, this is already his 7th Good Design Award. This is another recognition for Leo Aerts and his design agency Alinea in Geel, which continuously strives for high quality in interior architecture and design.


Angelo Totem

Angelo Totem is a stack of 4 elements in different materials, comprising together three objects with different functions (flower vase, fruit bowl, cheese board/cake dish). The different components are mutually compatible, so that different combinations are possible. The user creates his own combination. The Angelo Totem will be for sale as from the end of October 2018.
