Maarten Van Severen certainly is the most famous Belgian furniture designer and interior decorator today. His creations, pure lines that result in chairs, sofas, cabinets and tables (such as .03, .04, Blue Bench, MVS Chaise, Schraag...) made in his home atelier or produced by important manufacturers such as Vitra, Edra, Bulo, are very successful in Japan, the USA and many other countries. In addition, Van Severen plays an important role as an interior designer in, amongst others, the Van Abbemuseum (Eindhoven, the Netherlands) and the Villa d'Ava (Paris, France). In the near future a cutlery line designed by his hand will be produced by Alessi. This book is the most complete publication about Maarten Van Severen ever published. It presents about fifteen contributions of colleagues, experts, manufacturers and it reveals dozens of new images of his designs and realisations from the start until now.
