Why we curated this designer
The designer’s new collection ‘LA TRAHISON DE L’OBJET’ In her latest collection “La Trahison de L’Objet” Gaelle explores the puzzling process by which we experience and perceive the concepts of beauty and how we react to objects around us. The collection is inspired by two branches of philosophical thought, Empiricism and Innatism, each explaining the meaning of beauty, our divergent perceptions, ideals and judgements.
Handmade from a mixology of the finest materials and a play of textures the collection offers two categories: Eléments Vivants, presenting pieces that explore the idea of nature. The pieces are created to echo tangible elements that are found in the natural world. From the subdued to the bold, the present a short meditation on how to interpret the natural world. Répertoire de Formes, presenting pieces that explore the idea of form. The pieces look anew at elemental shapes and reflect on their various manifestations away from a simplistic view.
