MVE Marble Rectangular Tray
A clear expression of material, the MVE Marble Rectangular Tray captures the minimal design ethos of its creator, MichaÃ«l Verheyden. Through thoughtful reduction and attention to proportion, the designer has transformed a ubiquitous home accessory into a quietly poetic object that is sophisticated and sculptural. Crafted by hand in his Genk, Belgium studio from a single block of white marble, the tray exudes a sensual tactile quality from its smoothly honed finish. On its top, the crisp edges of the object give way to a subtle curved indentation that is ideal for storing small objects in style. At its base, the tray features a reveal, furtherer delineating the objectâs presence from the surface below. Reduced to its most essential elements, the tray easily fits within any setting, yet, with its strong minimal lines and decisive use of material, the object has a refined presence that does not go unnoticed. Trained as an industrial designer, Verheyden spent time as a runway model before building a successful career as a handbag designer. When he found it difficult to find tasteful objects for his home, he turned his design talents to homewares and began to create his sophisticated collection of quietly poetic objects. Perfect for use as a simple storage tray or as a decorative object, the MVE Marble Rectangular Tray exists in a fine balance between understated and impactful.
