Description

This object was imagined during a glass-making residency in France. Inspired by the flexibility and transparency of glass, the Curve Table seeks to reveal the essence of this material. A material whose visual sensations are very close to water, through its reflection, its transparency, and this sensation of visual movement.

It uses glass thermoforming techniques which consist of bending a glass plate at high temperature. The harmony between the curved thermoformed glass legs and the surface creates a feeling of visual lightness. Glass thus allows the creation of an object that is both organic in its forms and minimalist in its composition and visual unity.

Sophia Taillet focuses on the exploration of the material as a trigger for the imagination and approaches the elaboration of her objects as sculptures in order to let herself be carried by her intuitions while integrating a great deal of experimentation.

About the designer


Sophia Taillet

Sophia Taillet is a designer, graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Paris. She pays particular attention to the exploration of the material as a trigger of imagination and apprehends the elaboration of her objects as sculptures in order to let herself be carried by her intuitions and integrate a large part of experimentations. From steel to glass, his collections seek to reveal the intrinsic qualities of the material. Sophia Taillet has created a series of suspended furniture called \"Le Temps Suspendu\" for the Palais de Tokyo, and her flexible steel light Helik light will be exhibited at the Venice Biennale of Architecture in 2018. In 2019, through the Frac d\'Auvergne, she was selected for a six-month residency in a glassmaking center in Yzeure, France. In total immersion, she creates a collection of glass furniture. A balance between organic form and the play of light, this collection was exhibited at the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven and recently at the Collectible Fair in Brussels.    

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
