Reprint book Maarten Van Severen (second edition 2015, first edition 2000)
Originally published in 2000, this book is considered an intrinsic part of the Belgian furniture designer’s oeuvre. (The book was his first monography.) This new edition, published on the tenth anniversary of Van Severen’s death in 2005, offers a comprehensive overview of his many creations and inspirations through photomontage, slideshows of images, and an essay by Geert Bekaert. It shows how his ascetic tables, chairs, lamps, wardrobes, and more – designed for great simplicity and with modern materials – are synonymous with the feeling of a contemporary life. The book uncovers many aspects of his furniture, and reveals his work with Rem Koolhaas, Vitra and SMAK among others. This book is illustrated with plans, designs and sketches and has a list of exhibitions and works.
