Furniture Design

Van Severen, Maarten (1956 - 2005)

 The Belgian designer privileged a rigorous, almost ascetic aesthetic with his elegant, comfortable and simple creations. His furniture was the result of complex technical researches and featured a mixed use of innovative and organic materials. The son of an abstract painter, he applied a similar taste to his clean and monochrome designs that echo Wassily Kandinsky's words: 'the more abstract is form, the more clear and direct its appeal.'
