The lamp is made of steel, thus unbendable. These frivolous lamps are available in the meticulously selected playful colours that is so typical to the oeuvre of Muller Van Severen. ‘We want to make people look at the architecture of the home again, at the walls and the ceiling’, Hannes Van Severen explains. These lamps lead the eye’. That’s what design should do: tie the room together to create one story: the tale of the owner.
The first prototypes were shown at Muller Van Severen’s very first solo exhibition in 2011. During that exhibition, Fien and Hannes filled the gallery space Valerie Traan of Veerle Wenes (art director of valerie_objects) with designs that looked as if somebody took a set of crayons and started drawing in the air. This is in fact exactly how these lamps should be interpreted, as seemingly naive drawings materialized into real life.
Like all Muller Van Severen’s furniture, these ceiling lamps add a sober but colorful line to the interior. At the end of that line, there’s a lightbulb, “with a lampshade we initially dug up at a flee market”, Hannes fills in. “It is a fantastic lampshade: perfectly neutral. Luckily we found a company who was able to produce it”.
