In 1943, Alfred Chambon started the building of a bank, the siege of the ASLK - Algemene Spaar en Lijfrentekas - where he built The entrance door of more than 7 meters is made of bronze and enamels greyish - green, it is she who will inspire the decoration of the central bar, where it is the workshop of Pierre Culot who will realize enamels in the spirit of the door. When the past met the present.
A maximum of the dismantled elements in the building were used to build WOLF. The signs of the different counters, as well as old desks, have been repurposed into lamps. Boxes of Val Saint Lambert glasses from the glass roof were found and transformed by Lionel Jadot in lamps for the main bar. The front panels of the marble counters become the shelves of the main bar, and the brass trim strips of these same counters, the toilets’ lamps. For the kiosks, no less than 700 foundry molds that were recovered to reconstruct a frieze, recalling the frieze in the entrance.
LIONEL JADOT & NC-BAHM
Lionel can be described as a designer, a mechanic, an interior architect… A maker and creator who transforms, reuses, reduces, recycles and gives new life to objects. Or simply gives objects an unexpected life. He is the daring designer that turned this old bank into WOLF.
