In 2012 Muller Van Severen was appointed a solo exhibition at Interieur Kortrijk called Future Primitives. “It was the first big show of our designs”, Fien Muller remembers. “We had sixty square meters to fill but no furniture to sit on. We were urged to design some. ” Under small pressure of the solo show, Fien and Hannes made their iconic seats with a leather cloth spanned between two horizontal bars. After that, they designed the rocking chair which is constructed by the same principal. Just as with all Muller Van Severen’s designs, transparency is key. And so it swings through the space of the interior without ever covering the background. Available in a natural leather that turns dark-brown over the years with a green, red or brass frame, or in 3 different colour options with a fabric in 100% linen.
