Archibald Godts, teacher

Studio Plastique was founded in 2017 in Brussels by Theresa Bastek and Archibald Godts. The team builds up networks of collaboration around significant themes for contemporary society, combining imaginative scenarios and critical reflections with in-depth investigations of complex material supply chains and technological infrastructures, thus pushing the boundaries of what design aims to achieve. 

Plastique’s work has received international recognition and their work has been shown amongst others at the Design Museum Holon, Van Abbe Museum Eindhoven, Design Museum Ghent, Z33 - House for Contemporary Art as well as international fairs and platforms. 

They recently received the Dezeen Award for Sustainable Design, the Wallpaper Award and the Henry van de Velde Young Talent Gold Award in Belgium. Their collaborations range from institutions such as Cooper Hewitt, Design Academy Eindhoven, Boghossian Foundation and companies such as Fornace Brioni, Snøhetta and Wonderglass.
