Fireworks by Muller Van Severen is a collection of four screen pieces, created by the Belgian designers Muller Van Severen and manufactured by Emaillerie Belge. The exhibition runs during Milan design week and is set in a unique and extraordinary location within the building known as the “Kremlin” close to the Politecnico University, headquarter of the architectural firm Binocle.

The Paravents, which are composed by various shapes and heights of curved and bent sheets of metal coated with vitrified enamel, are constructed to define portions of space that encircle different directions by resembling an explosion of playfully matched colours. Fireworks is part of the ongoing research by Muller Van Severen around the investigation of the interactions between space and the objects that occupy it. In their practice Muller Van Severen explore the sense of verticality and have conceived these works as abstract compositions that relate directly to space. The shape of the Paravent is untarnished and essential; each reveals a meticulous quest for details and an elaborate and fascinating artisan process.

“Fireworks” reasserts the decade long collaboration between Massimo De Carlo and Lorenzo Bini, which pursues the shared vocation for the discovery of unusual venues. The desire to explore the city outside its conventional boundaries and habitual spots is an attitude that emphasizes Massimo De Carlo’s attitude and vision.
