The wardrobe is a tool often used in fiction to convey a sense of magic (Narnia), terror (The Others) or even a time travelling portal (Time Bandits). Artist and sculptor Hannes Van Severen is joining the ranks of creatives who have been inspired by this ubiquitous bedroom object, and has transformed a collection of wooden wardrobes into fantasy objects. Hannes says of his work that he “deprives the object of its original functionality and allows its aesthetic value to prevail.” In order to really feel what he’s making, you’ve got to let your mind go and allow him to reintroduce this object we know so well as something entirely different.
His penchant for furniture continues with his moonlighting job as an excellent furniture designer in collaboration with Fien Muller which we wrote about earlier this year. Definitely worth a look!
