Description

The lamps in the “A FLANC DE FALAISE” series draw their graphic language from the quarries from which they were extracted, combining geometric precision and the free expression of the material itself.

The light comes out of a crack crossing the block and freely orients itself by rotating the stone. The external treatment of the brass echoes the fragmented aspect of the stone.

Each piece is unique, due to its manufacturing process. The pieces are nevertheless reproducible, but will always be unique as the stone always breaks in a different way.

About the designer


Maxime Bellaunay

Graduated from the Ecole Boulle – Paris in craftmanship, Maxime Bellaunay explores the relation with the object and places raw material at the heart of his research. He will bring out the textures and surfaces of objects, in order to highlight their raw and primitive state. He founds part of his formal approach on the cracking of materials, in order to release their essence and reveal their original aspect. Through this random process, a dialogue is created between human action and the way in which nature will regain control over it. Through a sensitive and minimalist aesthetic, Maxime develops a singular language that he translates into his creations: furniture, objects, and lighting. He produces unique pieces or edited in small series, resulting from his collaborations in France and Japan.

Curated by

Often the ordinary and visible present becomes vague and forgotten. Analogue experiences have boiled down to a minimum during the last years. We are currently in a situation where much of our regular rhythm was interrupted, the everyday was frozen and almost disappeared for a while. It became particularly evident how the environment we are functioning in, what we have or possess, matters. Layers of the past provide a means to describe the world and rethink the evident. Remembering and untangling the past and the local provides a captivating perspective through types of objects, materials, and methods of making. The Estonian collection, “Revisiting the Past”, is based on tracking the everyday and the conventional, translating observations, reconsiderations, and hints of the past into contemporary design. More than ever, the future is about rethinking the present and the past, of what we have and need. The past is heavily coded in our future.
