BESPOKE GLOWING FOLIAGE
Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance for St. Louis Crystal
Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance created the Folia collection of lighting designs for Saint-Louis Crystal, Europe oldest manufacturer of glassmaking. The French designer created a set of lighting in wood and crystal that emanates a geometric and organic pattern around the room. “The cut of the folia crystal is inspired by a leaf that can tessellate to infinity or fly onto the crystal, as though a wind of folly was blowing” said Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance.
Marta Bakowski and Anatole Royer for La Chance
French brand La Chance presented a collection of wallpapers by Marta Bakowski and rugs by Anatole Royer. Bakowski’s designs show off with bright hues inspired by dripping paint while Anatole drew his inspiration from the sailor’s knots to create a rug made of giant crossing stripes which dimensions and proportions can adapt to any interior.
CRTLZAK for Seletti
Seletti presented Hybrid Collection of rugs by CRTLZAK. The new designs are divided in 2 parts featuring the contrast of floral decorations belonging to Western and Eastern tradition. “When East and West meet they do not always merge. Sometimes they embrace keeping each its own culture and style but creating something new and unusual” said at Seletti to Archipanic. As a contemporary version of ancient tapestries, Hybrid rugs are made in recycled Polyester, a material which is both sustainable and up-to-date allowing state-of-the-art graphic design that keeps the products accessible.
