For the fifth anniversary of valerie_objects, Muller Van Severen surprise the world with a creation we thought would never leave their studio: a wooden piece of furniture. It is no secret that Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen have always put wood aside to let other, less usual materials steal the shine, such as polyethylene, enamel and lacquer. Yet the time is ripe. The new items are a nod to the nineties refectory tables still seen in schools. The frame and the legs of the table consist of rounded steel tubes. The wooden top is available in four different wood types: a light birch, a classic oak, a stylish walnut and a darker cherry. Three different shapes are available: a simple round, a refectory-rectangular one and a straight version with rounded corners. Although it’s the first time that Muller Van Severen apply wood in their design, their signature playful style remains untouched.
