The functionality and the aesthetics of these trivets are equally important. once hung on top of each other against the wall, the mix of varying shapes create an abstract work of (colored) lines.
Just like all of Muller Van Severen’s furniture and objects, these trivets are stripped to the bare essence. They consist of nothing more than a thin steel outline of six millimeters thick. “We found that to be the most aesthetic.” Hannes explains. “But six millimeters is quite thin. To ensure that the table itself wouldn’t get burned while using the trivet, we tested it. We placed a pan full of sizzling hot sausages on the trivet which was placed on one of our polyethylene tables — polyethylene can’t stand heat. It seemed to work." (laughs) Functionality empirically proven! More importantly is the beauty of these trivets. Once hung on top of each other against the wall, the mix of varying shapes create an abstract work of colored lines. “We chose the shapes and colors very carefully.” Fien says. “It must form a whole”. That it does. Packed in a beautiful giftbox with certificate signed by the designers.

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.
