An experiment towards The Ideal Furniture02. Sep2013
In 2011 visual artists Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen decided to cross the lines of their individual disciplines -photography and sculpture- and embark on a mutual ‘furniture project’. Together they developed a series of unique design pieces, minimal in form and detailing but maximal in its usability and use of materials. Exactly these materials were the starting point of their investigations.
Their latest work is a quest for intersections, fusing a table, a staircase, a lamp, a seat, a chaise longue and shelves in one functional composition. Clear-cut storage boxes, tables, racks and lamps that refer to - in their pure form - the work of Donald Judd and Bauhaus, but embrace the lush adornment in their completion and combination.
