Koen, King of Belgium
Safety Signs (1981-1988) for Avmor Ltd.
We must immediately reassure those who think that they missed some important information about this small kingdom. The King of the Belgians remains Albert II. No coup d’état in this curious European country. No, we just want to refer to the prestigious award received a few days ago by Koen De Winter. Design Vlaanderen has given him the Henry van de Velde 2005 Career Award, the highest token of recognition a designer can hope to receive in Belgium. Which makes Koen the King of Belgian design.
