unlacquered or lacquered (red/white) steel and natural leather
182 cm x 62 cm x 61 cm and 170 cm (with lamp)
Duo seat + lamp was presented in the end of 2011 during Design Brussels. This object juxtaposes two seats made of lacquered steel and natural leather which is sewn to the frame by hand. The rectangular shape of the object contrasts with the arc-shaped leather cloths. The back rail of one seating becomes the arm of the second one. It is made with round steel bars instead of square-shaped or L-shaped profiles like the series before. The reason for this is the focus on seating. Muller Van Severen wants to put forth the simplest way of designing a seat; by hanging a piece of cloth between two bars. Duo seat + lamp urges people to sit really close without actually seeing each other.
