Beautiful objects create a stillness in this house in Genk, Brussels, home to an industrial designer and his wife. Michael Verheyden’s pieces are the simplest of forms – simple cylinders, round bowls, rectilinear tables, low slung reclining chairs, a singular rod of brass bent into a floor lamp. The materials – bronze, soapstone, cement, marble and wood – bring the forms to life, adding beauty and sensuality.
‘If you work with a material long enough, it will tell you the form it should take’.
The Sacred and the Plain, the work of Michael Verheyden, Genk, Belgium, T Magazine. Photographs, Alexandre Guirkinger.
