The exhibit options tables, chairs, and lights which are partially created from Zelfo, an revolutionary and patented materials made from one hundred% cellulose fibers, quickly renewable plant extracts (hemp, miscanthus, and so on.) and/or cellulose wealthy waste, like paper or material. Zelfo is one hundred% biodegradable.
The complete assortment explores the a number of choices that one similar implementation can reveal. As a primary strategy within the exploration course of, the chairs and the desk within the “Liga” collections illustrate the fabric’s capability to type complicated and resistant three-dimensional buildings. The rushes intersect, mix and mix to realize power, raise and help a plan.
As a second theme the “Perchées” (Perched) lamps, with their prolonged, inflated and opalescent volumes, spotlight the fabric’s delicate and lightweight qualities. Every raised bubble of sunshine permits an infinite recreation of single compositions or clusters.
Lastly, a mixture of the 2 earlier proprieties, the “La Ronde” (Round) and “L’Oblongue” (Rectangular) console tables, the place the larger thickness of the fabric utilized varieties a Zelfo casing, which encloses and rigidifies the tripod base.
“I acquired absolutely immersed in it [Zelfo]: dealing with; formalities; observations; confrontations; experimentation. An incessant coming and going between my instinct and the truth of the fabric, between my needs and its calls for. Zelfo resides matter. In fact I can information, squeeze and lure it. However in response to that there’s all the time an unpredictable quiver, a twist or a contraction towards the grain. I’m searching for this Etreinte, I’m looking for it. Typically I even anticipate it. That’s this undertaking’s problem, to do and laisser faire…,” says Elise Gabriel.
