COLOUR CABINET S / Story
Designed by Belgian designers Muller Van Severen, the Colour Cabinet collection is a series of floor standing and wall-hanging cabinets that highlight the contradictory interplay between clean, minimalist design with the vibrance and originality of colour. With functionality as a starting point, the designers explore how contrasts and similarities in materials and colours enhance and showcase the material’s natural beauty in furniture items. The collection’s versatile design and numerous options make it suitable for a wide variety of storage and display uses in many different private and public contexts. The cabinet body is crafted in organically dyed Valchromat – a unique kind of robust MDF material that is FSC-certified, with the supporting frame made in durable steel. The Colour Cabinets are available in a wide range of different variants and sizes, in both mono- and multi-colour options – from a single wall cupboard to a low media storage unit to a multi-shelf cabinet with sliding glass doors. Its versatile design and numerous options make it suitable for a wide variety of storage and display uses in many different private and public contexts.
Muller Van Severen was founded in 2011 by Belgian artist duo Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen. The couple has always been on an inspired quest for sculpturally interesting furniture objects, and their work sits somewhere between design and art, drawing on their passion for architecture and materials. They have won countless awards and collaborated with prestigious museums worldwide (such as Vitra Museum, Centre Pompidou and Musée des Arts Décoratifs Paris) and international galleries (Galerie Kreo, Side Gallery, Valerie Traan Gallery).
For HAY, Muller Van Severen has designed the Two-Colour Table, Colour Cabinet, the Arcs Lamp Shades, the Arcs Candleholder and Vase.
