Two circles and a tube: that’s all there is to it. For the round table S, Muller Van Severen designed a basic object that excels in details and finishing. There are no visible traces of welding and the table top consists of solid aluminum, adding a robustness to this piece of furniture. In contrast to the minimalist form, the table top is lacquered with a hammered coating. That is an old technique used for mainly industrial tools and machines.
Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen are basically artists, it is natural that their collection is somewhere between design and art - it is furniture: tables, seats, shelves or lights - but the form is not just about function and suggests different ways of living and using space.
