This shelving unit has integrated articulating upright supports, which rotate the shelving, allowing it to take on different forms within the same object. It can be used as a flexible room divider.


This multifunction is something that the designers' have become associated with, incorporating these concepts into many of their pieces. Different design functionalities are combined and juxtaposed in one object.


Folding shelves is an object first shown in 2014 at New Work, the second solo exhibition of Muller Van Severen at Valerie Traan, Antwerp.  Playfulness and transparency remain the key aspects. This time combined with rusted steel and aluminium. This is an object that excels in transparency. The rusted steel middle piece seems to float in the air.

This is a limited edition piece, of a total of 8. 


Muller Van Severen's love of materials is the starting point for many of their designs. They continually search for new ways to showcase the natural beauty of the materials and strive to let the materials speak for themselves, without concealing anything. The objects reflect their deep appreciation of the materials they use to create them. 


The designers work with a variety of carefully selected materials, each of which has its own unique qualities. The techniques they use to craft thier objects, the way materials age over time, and the and the tactile experience they provide are all deliberate choices.
