In Antwerp, one of the city’s most beautiful museums has been renewed and expanded: the Snijders&Rockox House. Nicolaas Rockox and Frans Snijders were pivotal figures in Antwerp in the baroque period. Both made their mark on the cultural and social life of their city. Nicolaas as mayor, Frans as a skilled painter of animals and still lifes. For 20 years they were also neighbors: they lived in two adjoining homes in the Keizerstraat. Both buildings, restored with care, are part of KBC’s patrimony, which the Rockox House has long opened as a museum and now adds the Snijdershuis. Over the shoulders of Nicholas and Frans, we look at making art and promoting art, to collecting and displaying, to markets and set tables, to the humanist and the modal citizen in the turbulent baroque era.

Bruns was commissioned by design agency Bailleul for the realization of the Snijders & Rockox house. The realization involved a number of interior elements such as benches and cupboards, various display cases, mounts for paintings, instruments and other objects and graphic works.
