Expert Profile
Cédric Etienne
Curator of stillness

Cédric Etienne is an interior architect, scenographer, and curator of stillness. He is also the founder of Studio Corkinho, a multi-disciplinary design practice based in Antwerp, where he lives. After a previous career in the fast-paced creative industry working with luxury brands and high-end clients, Cédric felt overwhelmed and left for a silent retreat in Japan. It was there that he discovered stillness, and the role architecture plays in promoting wellbeing. He also fell in love with cork, and integrates this natural, sustainable material in much of his work, such as in still rooms, which he creates for private and corporate clients.
