The pair Max Godet and Jennifer Meunier is proud to unveil their Max & Jane design studio space. Recently renovated, this address located in the Cavell district (Uccle) is presented as the showcase of the creations of the duo. Architect of training, Max has always been passionate about the work of the material and in particular the steel with which he creates a sober and elegant furniture, an ode to proportions and straight lines. He can rely on the dynamism and vision of his companion Jennifer (aka Jane) to imagine and design new creations, always more refined and bold.
At just 32 years old, Max Godet is part of the line of young talent emerging in Belgium. This native Frenchman graduated with a Master’s degree at Saint-Luc Brussels. Winner of the 2017 EDUDA prize for his creations exhibited during the Uptown Design tour, Max imagines and designs a seductive, minimalist and uncluttered universe, the perfect blend of craftsmanship and industrial design.
His particularity? Max almost never works on a sketch or drawing basis. He lets himself be carried by the material he shapes according to his inspirations. The work of steel he conceives is a model that he bends, welds and directs following his feelings. Each new creation is born from an emotion and a close dialogue that he constantly maintains with Jane, his everyday companion. Perfect self-taught, Max learned to use machines through experimentation. His work evolves and refines creation after creation. Each of them are entirely handmade by him. Originally, the taste of Max was focused on pieces with a raw look but he is seduced little by little by thermo-lacquered finishes for a more luxurious finish.
Jane (Jennifer Meunier) is Max’s yang. She forms with him a complementary pair, dynamic and essential. Each project is developed in systematic interaction: they discuss, exchange and validate the slightest step together … A constant dialogue that enriches their universe. She is an experienced skydiver and passionate about decoration. She worked in numerous boutiques such as Hugo Boss, Okaïdi and Maisons du Monde. Her talent as a shopkeeper expresses herself perfectly in the shop they opened three years ago. Their project was a little crazy: starting from scratch, they gradually filled the shop with their creations … and finally reached an audience of connoisseurs.
Today, the duo begins a new chapter in their history as the reopening of the store under the name of Max & Jane. The opportunity to rediscover their furniture, lighting and sculptures to beautify everyday life, including through a new capsule collection of luminaries “Escapes Tropicales”.
