Maarten van Severen started designing and producing furniture in his Ghent workshop in the mid eighties. His designs are characterised by comfort and a simple design. He started to cooperate with Vitra in 1995, which resulted in the Van Severen Collection. This collection consists of various tables, chairs and cabinet systems. The collaboration with Vitra allowed Van Severen to work with new materials, which helped him reach an unprecedented large audience. Until his death in 2005 he worked on a new series of Vitra designs, which was gradually taken into production.
