Sailing rope, copper, blown glass, iroko wood...
The Hesse native is a multifaceted creator.
The Bank for Very Wood or the chairs for Moroso:
which of his designs does he find most beautiful?
“Do you have a favourite child?”
His very first designs were for treehouses and skateboard ramps - a creative drive that matured over the young designer's trips to Europe.
“I am inspired the most by the minimal art of the '60s. It is important that things are not only beautiful,
but simple as well.”
The best example of his approach? The Mollo foam bubble seating for Established & Sons.

Muller van Severen
You could say that Hannes van Severen and
Fien Muller are multifunctionalists.
The Belgian couple design lamps that also happen
to be chairs, and shelving with built in writing
surfaces and seating.
With trademark minimalistic lines, the duo's pieces are made “rich and ornamental through colour,
material, and function.”
