valentin loellman: fall / winter

‘fall / winter’ bench by valentin loellman



‘fall / winter by valentin loellmann for galerie gosserez, paris is a collection that is characterized by a working process similar to that in which mortise-and-tenon joints are used to connect hazel branches to an oak top. a mixture of sawdust and glue is used to fill and round off these connections resulting in an aesthetic of organic forms in which no sharp edges remain.

each of the pieces are burned and treated with wax, and then the tops are sanded, polished and treated with oil, resulting in a contrast of warm, yellow wood with matte black charcoal legs. the hazel branches were chosen for their strength and straightness, producing a natural dynamic final structure, each one unique. each piece is hand-made, marked and numbered.
