TRIBU elevates the outdoor experience. Exclusive, modern, outdoor furniture: this is the field of distinction of Belgian design house Tribù. In the early nineties, Tribù was a pioneer of the philosophy that the terrace and garden should be seen as extensions of the house. Strengthened by its years of experience, this family-run design house has grown to become an internationally acclaimed brand. Luxury outdoor furniture from Tribù is now distributed in more than 60 countries and belongs to the best in the industry.
The pared down interiors by Marc Merckx are evidence of his constant search for the perfect balance between proportions, materials, and space. His style may vary from a warm minimal to a simple classical, but his approach is fundamentally the same. Spaces are meticulously planned and rearranged to ensure functional use as well as quality of living. His focus on space and light lift the minimal to the luxurious and materials appeal to all senses. On many projects, Marc has worked with artisans in Belgium, Europe and the US, using traditional methods to design contemporary details.
Before establishing his own practice in Antwerp, Marc worked for 15 years as a design director and product designer for architect Vincent Van Duysen, managing his residential and commercial projects in Belgium and abroad as well as designing furniture and objects for well-established international brands.
