Gallery FUMI, London


The series of Les French furniture pieces is an ode to the prototype. Derived from a mission to capture the impulsive gesture we see in the first sketch.

The project became an exercise in two parts. Ad-hoc configurations of bamboo joined together with wound string were used for the legs. Through a process of loss material casting, the fragile and unlikely structures are translated to structural and permanent bronze bases. The top volumes were sketched in cardboard like a family of unique characters fitting the bronze bases. Laid out, the cardboard patterns became the guidelines to a lightweight fabrication in gum-paper strips, underlining the friction in permanence between the top and the bottom part.
