Laila Gohar and Muller Van Severen present a collaboration that was initiated by a mutual enthusiasm and interest in each other’s work and which results in the presentation of ‘The Pigeon Table’. The Pigeon Table by Laila Gohar x Muller Van Severen will be presented during the Salone del Mobile in Milan in June 2022.
The piece is inspired by a conversation around mud brick pigeon houses in Egypt, Laila’s homeland. By very intuitively sending things -images, drawings, ideas- back and forth, the eventual design came to live.
It is difficult to describe in words what binds the two parties, because it is mainly an expressive connection. It is the love for authenticity, everydayness, a form of banality that can be ingenious, the rudimentary, the techniques…
“The Pigeon Table is an object made out of love for food and service, being together, conviviality and the pleasure of dining. It is an invitation to our world, our party, a dinner with an ode to what brings us together. Although we have never met in real life we feel we have been sitting at this table for years.”
The Pigeon Table by Laila Gohar x Muller Van Severen will be presented during the Salone del Mobile in Milan in June 2022. By appointment only.
