TRIVETS by Valerie Objects
The Trivets, designed by Muller Van Severen, are both useful and beautiful. Practical for placing on a table, when hung on top of each other against the wall, the mix of varying shapes creates an abstract work of coloured lines.
"We chose the shapes and colours very carefully " explains Hannes van Severen, "it must form a whole."
Like all furniture and objects by Muller van Severen, the trivets are stripped down to their essence. They consist of nothing more than a thin outline of steel six millimeters thick.
"We found it to be the most aesthetic." Hannes explains. “But six millimeters is pretty thin. To make sure the table itself wouldn't get burnt when using the trivet, we tested it, placing pans full of sizzling hot sausages on the trivet, which was placed on one of our polyethylene tables — polyethylene can’t stand heat."
