Like an abstract collage assemblage, this suite of polyethylene shards serve as both wall object and cutting boards. It’s just the kind of idiosyncratic, graphic take on design that is a signature of the Belgian duo Muller Van Severen. The highly durable colored plastic, they say, “has a soft feel and a certain sensitivity to it.” As for combination, they took an artist’s approach in the pairing: “It was a process of minutely choosing which nooks and edges would be visible.” Special gift boxed with a certificate signed by the designers.

With a mission to put a unique twist on everyday items, Belgium brand Valerie Objects was established by Axel Van Den Bossche, the CEO of homeware design firm Serax, and Antwerp gallery owner Veerle Wenes. Starting with a focus on cutlery and tableware, the company has outgrown its life as a side project to become a young but complete global design platform, allowing world-famous designers, architects and artists to translate their signature styles into tangible modern design objects.
Now encompassing textiles, furniture, home accessories and designer lighting, Valerie Objects' collection includes coveted pieces like Muller Van Severen's Rocking Chair and Hanging Light, as well as unique cutlery designs by Maarten Baas and Nendo and glassware from award-winning artist Chris Kabel. The couple Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen were one of the first to sign with Valerie Objects and are considered one of the most image-defining European design teams around. with elegant objects that appear to be conceived almost spontaneously. Like the rest of the brand's offerings curated by co-founder and art director Veerle, the work stands out as the mark of authentic thinkers.
