This building is certainly one of the most beautiful architectural masterpieces of Art Deco in Brussels. In 1930, at the age of 21, Baron Louis Empain had this private mansion of 2500 square meters built, on the prestigious Franklin Roosevelt Avenue. This splendid mansion was designed by the Swiss architect Michel Polak. Dutch interior magazine ‘Eigen huis & Interieur’ created a design special for their summer edition 2019 with products from several dutch designers. Amazing to see how well my Yukiko floor lamp, designed in 2015, fitted so well in the Art Deco environment of Villa Empain. A modern lamp with an old soul.
