sticks, twine, paper and gum : rendez-vous – les french collection : furniture design : studio glithero

rendez-vous is a new piece of the les french collection. a project of two parts. studio glithero first created ad-hoc configurations of bamboo, binding the joints with wound string. those frames were then sent to a bronze foundry and through a process of loss material casting, the fragile and unlikely structures were transformed to structural and permanent casts in bronze.

for the top part, with no predetermined idea in mind, the designers built the functional volumes of the furniture in response to the bronze pieces. underlining the friction in permanence and value that takes place in the casting process, they wrap a lightweight fabrication in gum-paper strips                          .
