Valerie Objects – Muller van Severen – Hanging Lamp – No1 – brass
valerie_objects is an antwerp-based design label initiated by Axel Van Den Bossche (CEO Serax) and art director Veerle Wenes (owner of the valerie Traan Gallery, Antwerp), combining their professional and personal tastes for all things good and beautiful.
By allowing designers, architects and artists to translate their signature style into tangible objects, valerie_objects has become an exceptional project with one clear mission: return aesthetic meaning to the tools and objects that we use every day.
After the cutlery, different collaborations with these and other creators followed, such as the award-winning designer Chris Kabel, the internationally acclaimed Robbrecht en Daem Architecten, the surrealist artist D.D. Trans and the minimalist textile designers from thealfredcollection.
Design duo Muller Van Severen was one of the first to sign with valerie_objects and remains a very important partner today. the couple Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen are considered one of the most image-defining european design teams of today. Their elegant objects appear to be conceived spontaneously and without effort.
Presenting everyday tools
Although valerie_objects has outgrown its life as a side-project and has become a young but mature global design platform, the philosophy remains the same: presenting everyday tools and objects that have a unique appearance.
valerie_objects understands the designer’s drive to develop a durable signature style, as well as the consumer’s desire to connect with a patiently selected object. The label stands for unique yet accessible creations, designed for daily use. Many owners develop a special relationship with their chosen object; they get more attached to it as it becomes part of their personal story.
