‘CONTRAST’, the experimental lighting collection by french designer julien carretero for victor hunt gallery, explores the inherent physical characteristics within various metals such as bronze, copper and stainless steel. the series is a play on weights, colours, textures and illuminating patterns using industrially produced pipes as raw material. a simple plane cut is processed in order to convert these industrial elementary supplies into different lighting object typologies. CNC-milled, laser-cut or crafted openings reveal the insides of the tubes in opposition to their exterior. the final pieces are reinforced through the use of numerous surface treatments ranging from standard lacquering, anodizing, polishing and brushing techniques to crafted patinas and natural oxidations.

 

*update: victor hunt gallery presents julien carretero’s ‘CONTRAST’ lighting collection at design miami/, from december 3-8th, 2013.
