When it comes to functional objects, there are endless possibilities when it comes to designing a vessel to hold food, trinkets, jewelry, office supplies or whatever else you want to throw in it. That said...I love the design approach of Belgium-based fashion and home accessories designer Michael Verheyden. Combining innovation and crafstmanship, his objects are beautiful in its purity and simplicity in design. Although he uses simple shapes, he explores and incorporates a variety of materials such as metal, wood, leather and marble onto one vessel adding some textures onto his creations. Check out that marble and leather lid combination,simply stunning!
