DOT collection uses furniture archetype as sculpture base, it's quite a process of sculpture that falls into place. From a geometrical assembly to an organique object, the human body is used as a tool of mediation between a natural material and a manufactured process. The trace of the tool is intentionally exaggerated in order to leave a testimonial of a trace of the living. The contrast between the smooth seat and the rough uprights criticizes the will for a smooth, flawless society. Right here the wood is highlighted by its roughness and the time to human manufacture is respected. All pieces are also unique thanks to the hand made process.
The Dot chair was acquired this year by the French Mobilier National and is now part of its collection
About the designer
Self taught, I came from industrial design studies to wood shaping. Its carving process always starts by feeling emotions through a living material and then are characterized in a physical moment. My work seeks to an essential approach of the object without superflu in which I try to lead to an ultra local manufacturing.
Based in Lille, my workshop aims to become a circular place where no material is wasted. Inspired by nature and simple assembly, hand work is central in my approach. I am using hand tool traces that have a testimony of a living entity. This collaboration between two living elements merge to a vital dialogue about our condition and respect of living organisms.
