What we do

We do curated tours for architects & design professionals that inspire and connect. As an individual architect, interior designer or creative you can apply to join us on one of our own curated tours (like Tour#01) with a compact group of like-minded professionals.

We can organise a made-to-measure Tour for you, for your company or your organisation. This type of Tour starts from your brief and objectives and matches both our goals. We prefer to work with compact groups and do not exceed groups of more than 25 people.

We are excellent strategists who love to execute projects. If you are interested in working with us for bespoke project related to design or architecture other than tours, don’t hesitate to contact us. Think of curatorial projects, artistic direction, European PR and communication projects, including digital and filmmaking, we offer the complete picture.

Who we are

Tour guides Joost Vanhecke and An Michiels have an in-depth knowledge of the European design scene. For several years, they worked together in the core team behind the renowned Biënnale Interieur in Kortrijk, Belgium. In 2015 Joost and An started to organise events, day-outs and inspiration tours for design professionals under the name dotsandplanes.

Joost Vanhecke

Throughout the years, Joost has initiated numerous exhibitions, product showcases, pop-up shops and temporary restaurants. He is guest lecturer at the French Rubika school of design and leads BOSS paints on it’s route to internationalisation.

An Michiels

An worked during 10 years in London as a project architect. In 2010, she shifted her focus and obtained an MA Curating Contemporary Design. She initiates design events and works in communication and design writing for clients such as bulthaup Belgium.
