Belgian designer Michaël Verhaegen creates uncommon objects for common rituals. Blending serene shapes and meandering materials into pure refined creations. All objects mirror their creator: caring, thoughtful. "But the obvious is never obvious", Michaël Verhaegen says, referring to the silent yet story telling shapes he creates. Revealing his quest for simplicity, against the backdrop of a rapidly changing world. "We need to feel grounded again". Which is why his objects combine a global appeal with unveiled roots. Craftsman Verhaegen prefers noble and durable materials that feel natural and age beautifully. Marble, leather, bronze, oak. "The obvious is never obvious", states Michaël Verhaegen, reflecting upon the creation process behind each piece - which spans from design to the actual manufacturing.
