chevalier masson

‘les 2 font la paire’, made of silk / polyamid / viscose the designers produce the butterflies on request

belgian designers anne masson and eric chevalier’s work is illuminated by an original approach – an open practice, without any preconceptions concerning the results; very different items: a scarf, a cushion, a hanger, chair, a cover, a carpet, etc. these day-to-day objects are explored regarding their different possible levels, sometimes the couple concentrates on the yarn, sometimes on the motif, on a structure or on a specific form.

the processes employed evolve continuously from one collection to another: pieces are perfected over time, structures or a motifs grow into new ones and change place, one work leads to another.
