Concept

Formal clarity and simplicity are distinguishing aesthetic features of Maarten Van Severen’s designs. Their appearance is restrained and elegant. Every element is structurally motivated and reduced to its essential form.

The great comfort of these objects is revealed upon use. It is achieved by the intelligent employment of materials: the flexible integral foam used for the backrest, seat and reclining surfaces yields gently to the sitter’s weight and adapts to body contours, thereby making additional padding unnecessary. Structural elements are made of metal, providing stability and support.

Materials
Seat/back and recliner shell construction made of profiled steel frame encased in batch-dyed integral polyurethane foam. Flexible backrest with integrated leaf springs.

Technical
2 to 5 seat units (2 lateral legs for all lengths), steel T-beam epoxy coated in basic dark, aluminium legs with surface coating RAL 9006. Configurations with table units available upon request.
