Axel Van Den Bossche
CEO & Founder Serax

 

Serax is a family business
with passion

We honour our family roots


Serax is the brainchild of SERge and AXel Van Den Bossche. Two brothers who were brought up amidst the flowerpot trade in their mother’s business. Over the past thirty years, the small-scale business that started up in a garage in 1986 has grown into a multi­national with over 65 employees and a head office in ­Antwerp. Today, the company is led by Axel. Axel’s wife – Marie Michielssen – is Serax’ house designer. She is the creator of, amongst other things, the famous ‘Cactus Vase’. Serax is a family business where passion runs through the veins.

We cherish designers


Working with well-known and lesser known designers is built into Serax’ DNA. In 1990, the brand started a tentative collaboration with Peter Arts, which was quite revolutionary in the florist design industry. One year later, Serax achieved international fame, thanks to the collaboration with floral artist Daniel Ost, who designed ‘The Flower Booth’ for the French design fair Maison & Objet. The seed was planted. Since then, Serax has entered into dozens of partnerships that have resulted in renowned collections and success at an international level.

 

We have a tableware love story


When founder Axel met ceramic artist Roos van de Velde in 2009, he wasn’t aware that this encounter would change the future of his company forever. After the launch of her tableware collection, starred restaurants from all over the world suddenly lined up to order from Serax. Today, Serax is the number one reference for Michelin chefs to provide them with the necessary creative porcelain or ceramics that enhance the aesthetics of their dishes.

We believe craftmanship is the only way


Over the past thirty years, Serax has been growing at a very fast rate. Yet it has never lost track of its basic principles. Therefore, every collection is crafted traditionally. Serax travels the globe with selected prototypes from designers to find the right craftsmen to manufacture on a larger scale. From Vietnam through Antwerp to Portugal. Always in line with the creator’s design and philosophy.
