STUDIO GILLES WERBROUCK
Gilles Werbrouck and Hugues Loinard (visual artist) collaborated on developing experimental objects mixing jesmonite molding and crocheted magnetic tape (VHS tape).
The result of the hybridization of the two designers’ work acquires a singular plastic and mechanical quality granting great freedom in production. The textile appearing randomly on the surface of the jesmonite captures the light and improves the robustness of each creation.
In order to highlight this formula, the duo produced a series of 22 lamps, each lamp made from one movie, the lampshade emerging delicately from the jesmonite base revealing the aesthetic quality of the VHS crochet work through which the light is filtered.
The lamp has been awarded at the Salone Satellite in June 2022.
