Designed by Cedric Breisacher
This is a totem of materiality. Several types of different scrap-wood is carved and black burned. The tower highlights the materiality of nature: stone (alabaster), brass (hand hammered, polished and patinated) and glass. The wood is the link of each element as it is massively carbon, the major physical element on earth with hydrogen.
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.
