The alu chair was originally designed as an outdoor chair for Anne Holtrop’s Bahrain pavillion for the World Expo 2015 in Milan. Since it is made of aluminum, the chair is quite light and suited for both indoor and outdoor use, thanks to the treatment with beeswax and an uv protective lacquer.
The aluminum frame of the chair shines bright while the colored back and seating give it that typical Muller Van Severen aesthetic. “Choosing the colors was hard for this chair." Fien says. “For the back and seating of the other chair we designed, we applied polyethylene, a material that is produced in a limited number of colors. These chairs are painted in a powder coating, meaning we could choose any color we wanted." In the end Muller Van Severen chose sixteen color combinations, which is a larger number than they usually work with. “This multiplicity of colors makes it look extra fun." Hannes explains. “You can actually create a landscape of colors." "The colors of the chair really determine the atmosphere of the space." Fien adds. “You can create a very playful or a rather serious environment."

Muller van Severen
Muller Van Severen was founded in the early Spring of 2011. With both Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen being artists, it’s natural that the collection sits somewhere between design and art. The couple has been on an inspired quest for sculpturally interesting furniture objects, always including the space around it, and characterized by a careful research into their shared passion for art, architecture and materials. At the same time Muller Van Severen’s designs appear to be created almost intuitively and with total effortlessness. It looks as if the designers draw with crayons in space.
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.
