collection Muller Van Severen

As part of Lille Metropole 2020, World Design Capital, Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen were invited to create an exhibition in the iconic Villa Cavrois. Inspired by the modernist masterpiece of architect Mallet-Stevens, they presented a selection from their oeuvre, including the new piece sofa cavrois, the first sofa they designed. It refers to the idiom of the wire s series, but while the wire s objects are open and transparent, this sofa is enclosed in warm green linen fabric, which emphasizes the unusual shape of the piece. Sofa cavrois invites people to sit close together, without invading each other’s personal space.
