« Presence » is a series of seats which get enriched by the memory of its use, the memory of presences. By using a 0.8 mm thick, raw brass sheet, brazed on a steel structure, this very flexible seat keeps a print of every use and contact it encounters through oxidation and deformation.

Being a chair by its iconic outline, « Presence » shows that an object is not inert: it is matter animated by all the emotional, psychological, symbolic forces that the user and owner have to offer. Shaped by its lived experience, « Presence » becomes a unique object whose value and beauty comes from its relations to its possessor, it is an object with an apparent history.

About the designer

Gaspard Graulich sees himself as a designer-explorer. Born in Reunion Island in 1983, he studied industrial design in Paris, a conceptual approach of design in Reims, and had a specialisation in sustainable design in Besançon. But it’s more his roamings through the African, Australian and north American deserts that shaped him, along with the profound connection to nature and landscape he cultivated during his childhood in a tropical volcanic island. From a quest for understanding that drove him from the age of 2 to dissemble everything he could lay his hands on, he has become a designer obsessed by object, its meanings, its functions, its purposes, its interactions. He has been leading for years an exploration about interactions between human and matter, in which lays the origin of object according to him, where ethnology and philosophy merge with technics, history and prehistory, … This both functional and conceptual approach take shape in various ways : writings, photographs, made-to-order pieces, experimental research, creations for editors, or small series pieces that he implements in his troglodyte workshop.
