using traditional furniture making techniques, such as wood-bending and metal casting, french artist vincent dubourg cuts, twists and bends materials, creating a dialogue between the conceptual and functional, hand-made and mass produced. each piece is created without prior drawings or design, and is cut directly from the material and assembled without any mold or predetermined outcome.

on display at the carpenters workshop gallery in london, are eight of his most recent works which reveal the violent deconstruction of form and manipulation of materials. the viewer is presented with a view into the interior space of an object while examining the deconstruction of the original classic form and the creation of a new form and function.

‘there is a desire to know the origin of shape in order to remove it from its context and deconstruct its form. the destruction is necessary for the construction of a new order. it is irreversible and necessary, just as in nature.’ -dubourg

  • In the interview it reads:

    ‘there is a desire to know the origin of shape in order to remove it from
    its context and deconstruct its form. the destruction is necessary for the
    construction of a new order. it is irreversible and necessary, just as in nature.’
    -dubourg

    Everybody can clearly see the deconstructing process. But what about the construction, of a new order?……

  • ok, the stairs are very cool

    shame about the rest
  • I don’t know…this is just too messy. It looks cool, but so do most things that are big and in a white environment.

    pfffffsh
  • the staircase model is really inspiring and full of concept.
    It’s flaking in front of your eyes
