Michaël Bihain

Having trained both as a butcher and carpenter, Michaël Bihain studied Interior Design at the St. Luc Institute in Liège and Hull University. Following his studies he opens his studio BihainProd in London. He currently works with different editors (Swedese, the Gallery 'chez Pascale', Tolerie-Forezienne, Wildspirit, Oboe) on the development of furniture design and accessories. Michaël Bihain also publishes some of his work, such as his 'Oyon' mural fruit holder. Alongside his professional career as a designer and Interior Architect, Michael teaches at the St. Luc Institute in Liège. Bihain's shelf 'Libri' received the '+1 Award' at the Stockholm Furniture Fair 'Best New Product Design 2008' and was nominated for the Swedish Design Award 'Design S'. He received the 'Henry van de Velde' Award and the 'Region Wallonne' Award. The 'Mosquito' chair was nominated for the Design Report Award of Milan. Bihain received the cultural prize 'Coup d'éclat' and won the ParckDesign competition with 'Ondine' a project developed in collaboration with the Belgian architect Cédric Callewaert. His work is regularly featured in international exhibitions and galleries. Some of his products already take part in the permanent collection of museums such as The National Museum of Stockholm, the Design Museum of Seoul and Liège's design museum. Michael's designs are a symbiosis of a contemporary lifestyle and collective memory. A characteristic element of his research is the obviousness of the lines obtained.
