Details

A key theme in the oeuvre of Maarten Van Severen is storage furniture, be it shelves, cupboards or sideboards. The design for Kast, which Van Severen worked on during the last few months of his life, can be considered the quintessence of his exploration of the subject. Kast is a storage unit that is modular in structure, the base version of which is a sideboard. Supplemented by two simple wooden crates and a further basic module, a shelf/wall cupboard combination arises. Van Severen paid special attention to the colour for the sliding doors, which not only emphasise Kast’s elegant and yet seemingly classical proportions, but also give it a fresh and optimistic sense.

Maarten Van Severen

Belgium, 1956 - 2005

Maarten Van Severen was born in 1956 in Antwerp, Belgium and studied architecture in Ghent, Belgium. He designed his first furniture pieces in 1986 and in the following year established an independent workshop, where he pursued the semi-industrial production of his own furniture designs. This unified process of design and production was a fundamental aspect of his work. He devoted himself to the examination of basic furniture types: chair, table, chaise lounge, shelving, and cabinet. He developed primary solutions for these categories based on a comprehensive exploration of the questions of form, material and construction. 



Beginning in 1990, Severen began to collaborate closely with the Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas and also turned his attention to interior design tasks. The beginning of his collaboration with Vitra in 1996 marked a new phase in his career. It offered him the opportunity to work with new materials and also brought a much wider degree of exposure and influence.

Until his death in 2005 in Ghent, Maarten Van Severen developed a range of new designs for Vitra, which have progressively entered series production.
