muller van severen “wire s#” at solo galerie.
until 30th january solo galerie presents the outstanding series wire s# by the belgian duo fien muller and hannes van severen. this furniture range was designed specifically for solo office, the second house in the solo houses collection, an extraordinary architectural project created by christian bourdais.
wire s# is a collection produced in stainless steel suitable for both indoors and outdoors, “we designed these two pieces for the solo office house central courtyard and pond. they resemble curved mattresses and resume the camber of a piece of paper. we wanted to emphasise the openness of the space. the rocking chair is not made from solid materials like concrete or wood, but from woven metal. you can see through it and appreciate the surrounding architecture. this transparency enables the object to be present, yet unobtrusive. it is not imposing, but nonetheless part of a sculptural gesture,” summarise fien muller and hannes van severen.
solo galerie is a global platform for presenting internationally renowned architects, favouring the experience of an original work rather than a representation by pictures and models. solo galerie is the personal project of christian bourdais, founder of solo houses in spain, and eva albarran, producer of contemporary art. it showcases architects whose practice extends to an artistic dimension. the galerie intends to represent winners of the prestigious pritzker prize like the ‘elite’ of architecture, but simultaneously open to contemporary artists through novel collaborations.
