There are not many designers who invest their time in creating a rocking chair. Most creators overlook it, labeling it is quirky and redundant. Hannes thinks exactly the opposite. “I’ve always been intrigued by rocking chairs." He says. “I used to have one here at home, near the fire place: a kid’s version where I hardly fitted in. I would sit in it a lot. I don’t know why, I guess the swinging movement of it reminds me of my childhood. Apart from that, I also enjoy balancing on two legs when sitting on a regular chair."
Thus, a rocking chair had to be made, which they did after they created their first seats in 2012. In that year Muller Van Severen was appointed a solo exhibition at Interieur Kortrijk called Future Primitives. “It was the first big show of our designs”, Fien remembers. “We had sixty square meters to fill but no furniture to sit on. We were urged to design some.”Under small pressure of the solo show, Fien and Hannes made their iconic seats with a leather cloth spanned between two horizontal bars.
After that, they designed the rocking chair which is constructed by the same principal. Just as with all Muller Van Severen’s designs, transparency is key. And so it swings through the space of the interior without ever covering the background.
Available in a bleak leather that turns dark-brown over the years with a green, red or brass frame, or in 3 different color options with a fabric in 100% linen

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.
