ABOUT

ABOUT FRED ERIK

ABOUT

FRED ERIK - the pseudonym of Frederik Deschuytter - is fascinated by the endlessly evolving world he lives in. 

Technological leaps make him wonder about how his living environment could, and inevitably will, look like. As a designer he feels the urge to respond to these impulses, to speculate about what is still intangible.

Ultimately, everything he does is connected by the same urge, a strong desire to move forward outside of the already existing, away from what is obvious and known.
