A BEAUTIFUL COMBINATION
Practicality and aesthetics At the helm of RJ Welding, a company specialised in metallic construction, Sandrine Velez Rocha and Jean-Paul Kala use their shared passion for design by creating top-of-the-range furniture.
Collections of modern designs with simple, graphic and clean lines offer practical products created by Belgian expertise. Together, the young couple conceives and designs each project before bringing their creations to life, handcrafted by Jean-Paul Kala in his workshop in Brussels.
R&J Luxe Furniture is above all the love of craftsmanship and raw materials, promoting Belgian art de vivre.
SANDRINE VELEZ ROCHA
Passionate about modern art and design, she sketches the furniture which she envisages, inspired among other things by her countless journeys.
Her love for design comes from her father, an industrial designer who would teach her the basic techniques and qualities required, which she was very quick to take on board. She shows real mastery in assisting Jean-Paul Kala in the whole design and commercialisation process of the R&J creations.
Gifted with a astute approach to business, she fervently and unwaveringly promotes and defends the development of the business and its creations.
A lover of welding from childhood, he received his degree in Industrial Pipefitting and Welding with a specialisation in TIG welding. In January 2013, he created the company RJ Welding, specialised in welding, pipefitting and industrial mechanics, which is held in high esteem worldwide for metallic construction.
He acquired a remarkable dexterity in working with metal, a material which he particularly likes for its strength, elegance, aesthetics, sturdiness, malleability and infinite creative possibilities. He is able to transform metal surfaces into truly stylish creations.
