Michael Bihain is the designer that won't terminate the creative process. Instead, he seeks to hand over the creative process to the client, or owner. The objects are meant to work as solitudes - or by repetition create a new unity. Bihain hands over the "relay baton" - like the awarded, unforgettable, ladderlooking bookshelf Libri for Swedese.
He currently works with different editors such as Swedese, gallery Pascale “collection”, Tôlerie-Forézienne, Wildspirit, Oxygene, Feld, Oboé, on the development of furniture design and accessories. Michaël Bihain also publishes some of his work, such as his 'Oyon' mural fruit holder.
Having trained both as a butcher and carpenter, Belgian Michael Bihain studied Interior Design at the St Luc Institute in Liège and Hull University. Following his studies he opened his studio, currently working on the development of furniture design and accessories either from his office in Bruxelles or from his workshop in Louveigné, both in Belgium. Michael Bihain is teaching at the St Luc Institute in Liège
and has been awarded several prizes. The Design Museum in Stochkolm and Seoul has some of his creations in its permanent collection.
