The furniture whisperer
by Jasmin Jouhar | 4/24/2018
In the exhibition “Typecasting. An Assembly of Iconic, Forgotten and New Vitra Characters,” Robert Stadler lends furniture a voice. Let’s take a listen!
A key theme in the oeuvre of Maarten Van Severen is storage furniture, be it shelves, cupboards or sideboards. 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 ambination 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.
