MVS Salt Mill
The Salt Mill is easy to spot. Muller van Severen once again shows that everyday tools don’t have to be purely functional nor seemingly invisible. The design duo reinterpreted the classic mill by reshaping the two basic parts of it — the head and the cylinder — into two perfectly geometrical forms: a sphere and a cube. notice that the classic proportions of the parts are altered: the sphere and the cube are of equal length (5cm). The sculptural quality is further accentuated by the shiny nickel plated finishing of the sphere. Together in two soft colors for the abs plastic cube, whisper white and yellow orange. apart from being beautiful objects, these mills function like every other.
Muller Van Severen
Belgian duo Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen began working together in 2011. As artists, Muller being a photographer and Van Severen being a sculptor, they are best known for their simple geometric lines and appreciation of materials. Their distinct minimalism has birthed a furniture collection under their combined name, Muller Van Severen, that speaks to art and the function of design.
With materials as the starting point, Muller Van Severen has a fondness for mediums like polyethylene and brass-- both that are used frequently in their works, including the sculpturally interesting four piece Cutting and Serving Boards.
The couple have been on a quest to characterize their works by careful research into their shared passion for art, architecture and materials. At the same time, Muller Van Severen’s designs appear to be created almost intuitively and with total effortlessness.
After winning awards and collaborating with prestigious museums and galleries worldwide, including a group show at the Galerie Kreo in 2014, Muller Van Severen continues to explore the boundaries between art and design in a contemporary and innovative way. All of Muller Van Severen’s own production pieces are handmade with an honesty to the rawness and irregularity of the chosen material.
