The new collection to be released in August is called Muller Van Severen for HAY.

HAY HAS TEAMED UP with the renowned designers Muller Van Severen – in August, the brand will introduce a collection designed by the Belgian duo simply titled Muller Van Severen for HAY. The collaboration will span across all of HAY’s product categories: accessories, lighting, and furniture.

Muller Van Severen for HAY
Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen have been working together since 2011. This is the first time they are designing products for HAY.

The collection is dominated by clear geometric shapes and bright colors.

The new range is a real match made in heaven, blending Muller Van Severen’s distinct minimalism with HAY’s playful aesthetics. Typically for both parties, the collection’s clear geometric forms and extreme simplicity will be spiced with bright, vibrant hues. For one, the Design Stories editorial team can’t wait to get their hands on the new vases and lamps with scalloped edges!

Muller Van Severen’s design work often starts with materials. The main material in the products designed for HAY is metal.

The luminaires and accessories are also available with a glossy mirror surface that reflects its surroundings.

In the collection's lamps, the light is directed both up and down.

In addition to lamps, the scalloped edges are also repeated in the collection's vases and candlesticks.

The creations of Muller Van Severen, aka Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen, typically balance between design and art – a good example of this is the duo’s perhaps best-known design, Hanging Lamp for Valerie Objects. Visually, the new products designed for HAY continue along the same lines, but with a joyful twist that matches the HAY style, making them fun and approachable.

The Muller Van Severen for HAY collection will arrive to Finnish Design Shop in August 2021.
