About this designer: Maarten van Severen
Maarten van Severen
The son of an abstract painter, Maarten Van Severen (1956-2005) studied architecture at Ghent art school; he completed three years before going to work on interior design and furniture projects, then in 1986 started to make furniture. The first piece, a long and slender steel table, has since been recreated as an aluminium model, which has been further refined over the years. In 1989 he produced his first wooden table: long, slim and pure in form. In 1990 he turned his attention to chairs. Vitra produced the first industrially produced chair by Maarten Van Severen, the .03 - this chair was novel in its combination of visually austere form with high-level seating comfort. Kartell produces Van Severen’s LCP Chaise ('Low Chair Plastic') a sculptural loop of clear or brightly coloured methacrylate joined with rubber buffers to allow gentle movement.

Description

The design for Kast, which Van Severen worked on during the last few months of his life, can be considered the quintessence of his exploration of the subject. Kast is a storage unit that is modular in structure, the base version of which is a sideboard. Supplemented by two simple wooden crates and a further basic module, a shelf/wall cupboard combination arises. Van Severen paid special attention to the colour for the sliding doors, which not only emphasise Kast’s elegant and yet seemingly classical proportions, but also give it a fresh and optimistic sense..
