In the world of Michaël Bihain, you may see dancing shelves (Let’s Dance), fruit becoming a part of our walls (Oyon) or a chair that you would never sit on (Paradise Chair). Michael’s unique and daring designs represent the vanishing point where news, lifestyle and conventional memory converge and overlap. They are his desire to design responsible furniture for free people.
