We filled this issue of RUM with powerful double acts and let the dynamic between two people who have a strong connection speak for itself across the pages of the magazine. Whether bound by a creative relation, a romantic relationship or a familial one – often in combination – the energy, magnetism and devotion are evident.
Relationships, art and interiors, is something we speak about with Tal R, one of the most acclaimed Danish artists of the 21st century, and filmmaker and writer Emma Rosenzweig. Read their open and honest interview about their life together, bridging generational gaps and building a family in Copenhagen. In their first-ever interview as a couple, the Rosenzweigs also open their home to RUM. The apartment, which also contains Tal’s downstairs atelier is a vibrant, beautiful and captivating home as unique as their love story.
Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen, partners in business as well as in life, are two people who have been incredibly influential on the international design scene. As Muller Van Severen they have enriched us with their universe of marble benches, hybrid steel and leather furniture, and a colour palette as intuitively appealing as candy. We shot the duo in their studio and at Design Museum Gent, which has only recently dedicated a retrospective exhibition to the couple’s directional design to mark Muller Van Severen’s 10-year anniversary.
Also we visit six creative duos who all confess to the same thing: having someone else to bounce creative and personal ideas off turns them into better versions of themselves.
Enjoy many more amazing couples and inspiring homes in this issue of RUM.
