Belgian creatives Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen have collaborated under their design brand Muller Van Severen on a multicolored marble bench. It combines luxurious marble with clear lines and shapes. During the creation process, the duo focused as much on art and design as they did on the functionality of the furniture. Therefore they combined Van Severen’s flawless sense of color with Muller’s understanding of materials.The result was a bench which is a piece of art and a piece of furniture at the same time. “The frame is strict but what’s happening in the frame is always playful”, Van Severen explains during an interview for TL magazine. Last year, Muller Severen furniture collection was presented at the Bahrein Pavilion at EXPO Milano 2015. In the same year, the collaboration earned them the title of Designer of the Year in Belgium.
