Sergio started his career in the family-owned restaurant Oud Sluis in Sluis, The Netherlands where he worked for 25 years. Since 2005, he has held three Michelin stars and was listed in the Top 50 of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants for eight years. Irrespective of this success, Sergio made the decision to close the doors of Oud Sluis in December 2013, so he could apply himself to new projects. Today, Sergio has four restaurants. The Jane** in Antwerp, Belgium, Pure C**, AIRrepublic* and Blueness in Cadzand-Bad, The Netherlands. Besides this, he has taken on the culinary responsibility for the French fries concept Frites Atelier. He also has published several cookbooks of which the latest ‘Sobremesa’ appeared last Summer.
Working with upcoming and renowned 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.
