STUDIO PIET BOON PRESENTS
RESTAURANT THE JANE ANTWERP RENEWED
It all started with a phone call of Job Smeets of Studio Job, who spotted a former chapel
in the centre of Antwerp. This could be the place to run the most beautiful restaurant of Belgium!
Chefs Sergio Herman and Nick Bril had spoken about a possible cooperation before;
this certainly gave them the opportunity. The rest is history. The Jane Antwerp became a huge success
(and it still is). You have to make reservations far in advance and cancel it is just no option.
Recently the interior was updated by Studio Piet Boon. A very good reason for VITA DI LUSSO
to stop by, have a look and…. have a bite.
Making dreams come true
Sergio Herman: The Jane had never been opened without the all the people who helped us with this extraordinary project. Partners, suppliers, artists, entrepreneurs and Dutch topdesigner Piet Boon. From the smallest cushion to the three kitchens where we dance behind the stove. Everything in The Jane started with brainstorm sessions and negotiations. Everything was realised by people around us. They made our dream come true.
In that start up period, The Jane requested several seating possibilities. For the dining chairs they used the black Spine collection of Fredericia. In the Upper Room Bar the barstool was applied, which was re-made to a semi high version.
In the centre of the space they placed a so called low dining experience, with the Feel Good chairs of Flexform designed by by Antonio Citterio. The classy jade green upholstery gives the interior a luxurious, exciting and sexy personality.
Respecting the original award-winning design, Studio Piet Boon provided the renewed interior of The Jane with new and bespoke furniture, higher seating elements, art objects and a colour palette inspired by the colours of the stained glass Studio Job windows.
For the redesign of restaurant, they worked with Dutch artist Anouk Kramer to help realize their contemporary and artistic interpretation of kitchenware. The exclusive rustic art pieces have been incorporated in the interior of The Jane.
In case you have not been to The Jane yet: don’t be scared off by the lengthy waiting periods. It is certainly worth it!
