Valerie_objects, the design label founded by Serax founder Axel Van Den Bossche and art director Veerle Wenes, has recently launched a new collection designed by the acclaimed design duo Muller Van Severen. Maison&Objet has named Muller Van Severen as the “Designer of the Year 2023,” adding prestige to this collaboration.
The highlight of this collection is the Standing Lamp Marble, which is a follow-up to the popular Hanging Lamp created by Muller Van Severen. The Standing Lamp Marble consists of two minimalist fixtures that pay homage to the design of street lights. The lamp’s streamlined body is supported by a solid marble base, giving it an elegant and contemporary look. The simplicity of the design gives it a child-like quality, as if it was sketched by a young artist.
What sets this lamp apart is its versatility. It features two metal arms: a curved one perfect for reading in an armchair, and a straight-edged one designed for use at a table. This thoughtful design approach ensures that the lamp can be used in various settings, catering to different needs and preferences.
When discussing their creation, Muller Van Severen emphasized the continuity of their design philosophy through their collaboration with valerie_objects. They believe that every object they create for the brand represents the essence of their design practice. Despite the change in medium, their aim remains to create objects that blur the line between art and furniture. The Standing Lamp Marble is no exception, as it embodies the spirit of their acclaimed hanging lamp while adding a romantic touch to any room, reminiscent of the warm glow of a street lantern.
