Maarten Van Severen
The son of an abstract painter, Maarten Van Severen completed three years at a Ghent art school before going to work in various agencies on interior design and furniture projects, and then focusing on furniture. His work, hand-produced in his workshop in Ghent Belgium, reflects his quest for perfection in form, detail and fabrication. Maarten worked in a variety of different materials: aluminium and ply, to bakelite and polyester.
