Xavier Lust was born in 1969 and studied Interior Design at the Institut Saint Luc, before starting his studio in Brussels, the Xavier Lust Design Studio, dealing with four different sectors of design: Furniture and industrial production, limited editions and pieces for art galleries, interior design and industrial and urban design. In 2000 Lust started to design for MDF Italia, an ongoing relationship that got him in contact with various studios he would later collaborate with and make iconic pieces.
Xavier Lust's designs are distinct because of his use of tension and curves that deforms the metal surface. Lust was awarded the Compasso d'Oro, a great honor in the design world. His iconic work is displayed in museums around the world as well as various design publications. Lust frequently guest lectures at leading art and design institutions around the world.
