Plates by Luc Tuymans is a set of five porcelain plates in a gift box. The set is based on a work of the same name by the artist from 2012. The artist made this set at the request of paediatrician Philip Maes, founder of Simon & Odil (a non-profit organization linked to the King Baudouin Foundation). For years already, Dr Maes has been researching sickle cell disease (SCD), a hereditary blood disorder that affects 60 to 70,000 children a year. Dr Maes’s non-profit organization finances neonatal screenings of newborns, ensuring treatment can be started more quickly and affected children have a better chance of survival. Per set sold, Luc Tuymans and Serax donate 50 euro to the non-profit organization.
