"Photographer and creative director Matthias Vriens has returned to his earliest passion—decorative arts—with the launch of Atelier MVM. The new studio encompasses a kaleidoscopic range of Vriens-McGrath’s designs for furnishings, lighting, and objets de vertu. The entire collection is informed by a sensibility grounded in the designer’s lifelong obsession with antiquities, naturalia, and vintage textiles of far-flung pedigree, all of which he recombines and recontextualizes to create modern objects of wonder. African masks, coral, bronze, trade beads, seashells, antique mirrors, Uzbek fabrics, Tuareg weavings—these are the elements of Atelier MVM’s alchemy."
