Elle Decoration NL / November Issue 2019
PALACE OF YOUR DREAMS
Concept, Set-design and Art Direction
Chief editor Evelien Reich (Elle Decoration) dreamed of creating a imaginary world inspired
by the work of artist Giorgio de Chirico. Daphne developed and directed the concept & storyboard
and collaborated with photographer Carlfried Verwaayen and Visual Citizens who visualized
these surreal sets to create this visual story for the October issue of Elle Decoration.
We played within the boundaries between surrealism and realism, where the line between these
two worlds is completely blurred and where the viewer is not sure what is real and what is not.
Art Direction on set design: Daphne Westland
Spatial Design and 3D visualisation: Shali Moodley Visual Citizens
Photography and postproduction: Carlfried Verwaayen
