Michael Verheyden is a Belgian designer who creates uncommon and highly aesthetic design objects made for common daily rituals. His refined and functional products are combination of serene and clean forms, durable materials and exquisite craftsmanship. Their aesthetic of quiet and subtle luxury embodies philosophy of slow living and simplicity.
All Michael Verheyden products are designed and crafted in his Genk workshop that he shares with his wife Saartje Vereecke. Vehayden prefers to create with noble and durable materials that feel natural and age beautifully such as marble, leather, bronze and oak. Beside human touch he gives to the objects, his philosophy involves knowing and understanding the material so it can propose design itself. Therefore, design of these simple and minimalist objects often materializes as an ode to natural beauty of materials used for their creation.
