Mutation furniture fit for X-Men is on the prowl! (Are you listening makers of the marvelous Marvel franchise?) Matching the excellence suprême of the mutants is Maarten De Ceulaer. Made by placing spheres of upholstered foam in an agreeable configuration and then coating the finished piece with rubber to hold it together, their mutation series furniture wins top marks in innovation.
The award-winning designer’s eponymous label emulates his personal observations as well as new production techniques and materials. Born from the idea of organic sources replicating themselves and the dramatic spawning of cells, his line of “mutated” furniture is hands-down handsomeness. It channels ‘organic’ as well as ‘scientific’, mimicking what could be a viral attack or a nuclear reaction. The result clearly is quite contrary to what could be expected and, by the looks of it, quite the exemplar of plushness. Think Chesterfield-meets-chem-lab-experiment!
The “Mutations” collection includes sofas and chairs, with and without metal legs/ armrests, and stools. The furniture fashions bold blacks as well as vibrant colors and its basis in a natural evolution ensures no two pieces are entirely similar.
