In the middle of nowhere.
The Belgian sky is a solid grey, and cows graze in mist-shrouded pastures between groves of forested green. Dropped off on the side of a lonesome road in the small town of Evergem outside Ghent, I have reached my destination – the design studio and residence of visual artists and furniture designers Muller Van Severen.
I step into the front garden space between tall roadside shrubbery and a two-storey house. A concrete stair mysteriously wraps up off the ground into the air and two ducks waddle around the sculpture piece. What peculiar wonderland have I wandered into?
