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.

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.
