‘graph’ for fiam pesaro, 2011




xavier lust is clearly identifiable through the visible tension he gives to his objects, and the curves influenced by his innovative (de)formation process of metallic surfaces. he believes that the forms generated naturally in our universe are in intuitive and visceral adequacy with our body, our flesh. they take all their reason for being and delight us when they integrate our living space in the form of objects, furniture or architecture. his creative practice has received dozens of awards, including compasso d’oro, and he will share his expertise in product and furniture design with BODW attendees.
