Muller Van Severen Chairs

When photographer Fien Muller and artist Hannes Van Severen combine forces to create, you know it’s going to be something to marvel. What they have created is this ridiculously elegant collection of chairs, creating the furniture out of sheer necessity and function.

The artists explain their minimal designs:

As to form or proportion we do not add anything; the rich marble or the vibrant colours of the synthetic material create a contrast with the tight form. The image of minimalism is worn out. This furniture battles with minimalism and uses it at the same time. Details have been left out, everything has been reduced to the most simple technological solution and still the result is very rich in ornamentation.

I think the combination of the materials and minimal forms result in a collection of some of the most beautiful chairs I’ve seen to date.
