SLICE collection is born from a wish to recycle wood leftovers into massive sculptural blocks. The intention is to give back to the material its first born vitality. By sculpting those massive block with my own body, this vital energy is transmitted thanks to my hands and movement in correlation with the material reaction.
Surfaces are worked in order to keep traces of the carving moment and tries to maintain a vibration by playing with light and shadows, material grain and vegetal dye. Like a metamorphose, the material is taking life again in an other shape. As result, the function is simply given by a plan surface placed at different height. All pieces are also unique thanks to the hand made process.
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.
