The Stainless steel Mask is part of the collection visage,
“Visages” is an exploration of the fold and curvature through a series of five masks. Those are made out of paper, plywood, linoleum, stainless steel and leather following experimentations in industrial processes. Designed flat from simple shapes, a limited number of folds give volume to the masks and marks their character. Each piece sports a different expression that results from the material used and the manufacturing process involved.
The stainless steel mask is produced following the process of expanded sheet metal commonly used for Architectural facade.
The flat sheet is cut out in a staggered pattern which allows it expansion in three dimensions. Once folded the irregular pattern capture the surrounding light and get a fur look and feel. This unique step gives it volume and expression to the mask.
