ceiling lamps n° 1/2/3/4/5
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 lackered 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.
