We’re fans of the work of Belgian interior designer Marc Merckx, who worked for Vincent Van Duysen for 15 years and whose inky black pool house we featured on Gardenista a couple years back (see Master Class: A Quietly Luxe Belgian Pool House by Marc Merckx for more).
We just learned of the designer’s line of elevated everyday objects, called ICO, made of “solid, natural materials that are pleasing to use and touch,” and which refer back to the “archetypal kitchen” in Merckx’s mind’s eye: Copper and brass refer to pots and pans, marble and terrazzo to work surfaces and sinks, and wood to cutting boards and butcher blocks.
No prices are listed; contact ICO for pricing and availability.
