Lighting is also an important thing every household must have. It gives some cool and calming ambience. However, it would be nicer if the lamps that we are using were made of eco-friendly materials like the Woollight that have shades made from used wool blankets. Normally used blankets are disposed off and eventually add up to mountains of landfills. This time around, blankets became already one of the important aspects to our household lighting. The Woollight is perfect to any contemporary homes and offices. This is also a great way to help save the earth from possible harm and damage.

Random Resurrection is a set of custom made furniture based on a second hand e-bay objects mix. The work consists in a game of combinations. Instead of drawing shapes, designs are born from a combination of existing elements. A leg is fixed to a new tray, one material is inserted into an other one, a back part becomes a seat, and a broken piece offers a new part for a leg. Beyond the aspect of giving a second life to rubbish furniture and transformation of your grandmother’s table in an original design, the idea is to question the shape of standard furniture. It is a work on the mutation of common objects in a new one carrying traces of ordinary typologies. It is more a spontaneous collage, close from photoshop manipulations in the real world than a classic formal design process with sketches and computer renderings. Random Resurrection is a ‘cut&glue’ process assigned to generate an unique design.
Meeting table: Three e-bay tables have been assembled in one piece in order to create a hybrid object. Woods, legs, shapes and style are combined to generate an original composition. The heavy decorated central part maintains two aerial extensions supported by a thin leg. A second wood veneering (?!) and tray a blue one are inserted into the central part to constitute a 10 person table.
Chairs : A batch of archetypal, cheap wood chairs have been bought. The original chairs have been unscrewed, dismantled and cut, then re-assembled and painted in different ways. Back parts, seats, legs are, each time, re-organized to offer new functions and create various typologies of chairs.
