Description

Design by Hervé Humbert
The French artist Hervé Humbert reproduces preexisting “classics” from design, architecture and art history. In his process of building a replica, he engages in a dialogue with the object, traces and manually repeats what is visible in the model. He interprets the precursor by his selection of materials and sizes, by transposing details and contexts, making everything, wherever possible, by hand. The replica is only identical to its precursor at first glance. It becomes an industrially unrepeatable unique through subjective perception and Humbert’s specific handwriting.
“Petite table d’angle” is an unusual table object in which Humbert blurs the boundaries between art and design.
The series developed for Atelier Haußmann is comprised of 31 unique objects each consisting of a remnant marble slab with a breakpoint, surrounded by a steel angle frame which has been individually composed to match the random shape of the slabs, yet remaining open at the breakpoint. Unexpected perspectives occur as a result of this tabletop which juts out like a cliff hanging over the frame and the arrangement of the table legs is reminiscent of architectural structures.

About the designer


Curated by

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
