The Well-curated life of Robin Bevers

We met up with Robin Bevers, who took over as the CEO of Moooi after co-founder Casper Vissers stepped down in 2015. Robin Bevers was in SA recently and shared on the purpose behind Moooi and Weylandts collaboration. Read all about it here. ‘Design is love. Design is the unexpected welcome. Good design touches the head and the heart,’ says the stylish CEO. We had to find out more about this jet setter’s signature style, his personal favourite design and the best advice he ever received.
