The new design collaboration with the world-renowned Belgian design duo Muller Van Severen is now available in stores. Muller Van Severen was founded in 2011 by Belgian artist duo Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen. A shared love of colour and materials is often the inspiration behind many of the duo’s designs. Celebrated around the world for their minimal elegance, they bring their eye for colour and their affinity for simplicity that eschews the ordinary to a range of HAY items.
"For us, the collaboration with HAY is the perfect occasion for us to offer our work to a wide and also to a young audience," says Muller Van Severen.
"We carry the same passion as Mette and Rolf Hay, which was very important in the creation of these objects. Our shared values informed the development process and research significantly as we all sought to stay true to elements we consider to be essential, such as authenticity and sensitivity, even though our items for HAY are produced at larger quantities than other Muller Van Severen designs."
Arcs Shade and Arcs Wall are made from one stainless-steel sheet with rounded edges at the top and bottom, Arcs' edges are joined together to produce a scalloped silhouette.
Available as a table, wall or pendant lamp, it creates atmospheric gestures and patterns of light and offers a poetic illumination as light is softly projected from both ends of the lamp.
Arcs Candleholder protoypes
Sharing the shade's poetic signature shape, the Arcs Vase and Arcs Candleholder are similarly sculptural, and the elegant scalloped frame becomes a spatial volume that encloses a vase or a candleholder.
The Arcs Vase is made from steel or mirror-finished stainless steel, and the Arcs Candleholder is crafted in zinc alloy, and comes in two different heights with various colour options that include pastel, bright and mirrored finishes.
A marriage of two materials used at their best. Inspired by the contrasts and similarities in the materials used, the Two-Colour Table features robust steel tube legs and a tabletop crafted in organic coloured Valchromat.
Like much of Muller Van Severen’s work, the Two-Colour Table achieves an elegant minimalism without seeming ordinary.
