Although MVS looks like a sculptural object at first glance, as soon as you use it you realize just how comfortable it is. The soft, elastic upholstery fits the body's contours, making it an extremely comfortable recliner. The frame construction makes it easy to shift from a sitting to a lying position.

Formal clarity and simplicity are distinguishing aesthetic features of Maarten Van Severen’s designs. Their appearance is restrained and elegant. Every element is structurally motivated and reduced to its essential form. The great comfort of these objects is revealed upon use. It is achieved by the intelligent employment of materials: the flexible integral foam used for the backrest, seat and reclining surfaces yields gently to the sitter’s weight and adapts to body contours, thereby making additional padding unnecessary. Structural elements are made of metal, providing stability and support.
