Belgium – Evergem
Following an invitation from Solo Houses, design duo Muller Van Severen created the wire S # series. These stunning seats, designed for a vacation home in the wilds of northern Spain, are made from stainless steel wire mesh and are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
The production process is a balancing act between transparency and strength. How do you ensure that the various bars of the grid that form the volume don’t collapse? It’s this same grid that brings another complexity: an incalculable number of welding points. Muller Van Severen uses the basic shape of a mattress as a starting point, then folds it.
“This rocking daybed isn’t made from heavy materials like concrete or wood, but from wire mesh,” explains the design duo. You can see through the object, but still grasp its architecture. Transparency makes objects present and absent at the same time. They don’t impose themselves on you, yet continue to be sculptural.
The discovery of this new material made us want to establish a new world of landscapes and sculptures that also gives a place to !”colour.” Available in white, red and green, the wire S # collection is not the only wire mesh creation by the Belgian designers. The wire C#1 series is a splendid piece of storage furniture with a neo-chestnut cabinet look, revealing your finest collections of all kinds.
