Belgian design duo Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen have drawn inspiration from their respective family roots to create an innovative and minimalistic modern furniture collection, using simple materials in combination with a rich colour palette. The duo has achieved significant commercial fame recently with major brand collaborations from Hermès to Airbnb, as well as accessible capsule collections of design objects with stores such as Hay and Matter NYC. Through conversations and visual references, this publication unveils the origins and complexities of, and the references embedded in, the DNA of Muller Van Severen's work. Curator Jan Boelen explores the designers' universe through interviews with them, alongside curator and critic Beatrice Galilee, and architects Arno Brandhublr and Sam Chermayeff.
