TWO-COLOUR / Story
Described by Belgian designers Muller van Severen as a marriage between two materials used at their best, the Two-Colour table series is inspired by the contrasts and similarities in the materials used. Featuring steel tube legs for optimal strength and stability, the table surface is crafted in organic coloured Valchromat – a unique kind of robust MDF material that is FSC-certified and features a water-based lacquer. Both components are united by the even thickness, creating a uniform silhouette that is disrupted by the contrasting elements of colour. Two-Colour is available in different shapes, sizes and colour combinations, all offering a distinct personality that makes it ideal for a wide variety of environments, from cafés and restaurants to homes and office spaces.
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, the Arcs Lamp Shades and the Arcs Candleholder and Vase.
