Last month Pierre Marie Giraud gallery in Brussels hosted a solo exhibition for first time, showcasing Michael Verheyden’s furniture. The Belgian designer has created a new body of works inspired by exoticism, travels and refined materials for the gallery. In November, Michaël Verheyden presented this new collection developed for and with Pierre Marie Giraud.

Michaël Verheyden began his career as a fashion and accessories designer collaborating with the most prestigious names of the fashion industry. He designed his first objects and furniture in 2009, and for the past 10 years, he has fine-tuned his signature by building a strong collection of lighting, tables, chairs, and home accessories.

The designer’s practice is driven by a search for balance and rightness. He draws objects that embed a strong presence yet blend in interiors. He tackles functional objects with a taste for technical efficiency and crafted materiality. His attention to the tactile and visual qualities of materials confers to each of his piece of furniture the simplicity and strength of a new archetype.

Looking upon Jean Michel Frank, Mies van der Rohe, and Donald Judd as inspirational figures, he draws from them his sense for understated chic, a textured sensuality, and a rigorousness on the verge of minimalism.

Verheyden’s care for detail and his love for exceptional craftsmanship have met the exigency of Pierre Marie Giraud’s selection. The spaces of the gallery, with their homy dimensions and domestic atmosphere, welcome the furniture of Verheyden to create a sense of hospitality.
