Together with the hanging lamps, these ceiling lamps are the first design objects Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen created as a design duo back in 2011. They presented the objects during a solo exhibition at Valerie Traan, the gallery of valerie_objects’ art director. The lamps appear to be almost naive drawings materialized in the air, adding a playful line of color to the space.
The design is utterly simple, consisting of nothing more than a bended and lacquered steel tube and an archetypical lampshade on top. “Initially we dug up the lampshade at a flee market." Hannes Van Severen says. “It has a fantastic form: perfectly neutral." It is this sense of clarity that Muller Van Severen is renowned for. Just as their other furniture, the Ceiling Lamp creates space rather than filling it up.
The Ceiling Lamp series is available in three heights/sizes and in black or brass.

Valerie Objects is an Antwerp-based design label initiated by Axel van den Bossche (CEO of Serax) and art director Veerle Wenes (owner of the Valerie Traan gallery, Antwerp), combining their professional and personal tastes for all things good and beautiful.
Although valerie_objects has outgrown its life as a side-project and has become a young but mature global design platform, the philosophy remains the same: presenting everyday tools and objects that have a unique appearance.
Valerie Objects understands the designer’s drive to develop a durable signature style, as well as the consumer’s desire to connect with a patiently selected object. the label stands for unique yet accessible creations, designed for daily use. many owners develop a special relationship with their chosen object; they get more attached to it as it becomes part of their personal story.
AVG (Average) is the balance between design and function. The name closely reflects our philosophy; to source everyday, useful products from around the world that serve a meaningful purpose in our customers lives, while adding to the overall beauty of their daily life.
Founded by designer Chris Hanz with Morgan Maisano in 2016, today in addition to the online store you can find the Average showroom on West Queen West in Toronto.
The collection is hand-picked by the founders and includes unique handmade pieces and mass produced items and can range in form between apparel to furniture, but maintains a common thread of timeless items designed with honesty, thought and integrity.
