Bench "Copper" Valentin Loellmann

DESIGNER : VALENTIN LOELLMANN


 

“Converting massive copper plates into elegant, friendly and light creations was main motivation and challenge to the latest pieces. They result in a series of unique objects to use. Thin and slightly bended legs open up into a metal body holding a soft wooden top. Two opposite materials, both technically and sensually different, relate with their contrasts and merge into one piece. The realization refers to the creation of custom fitted clothing – haute couture.Pieces that are constructed by hand from start to finish, with extreme attention to detail, using time-consuming techniques. When thinking about shapes and movement of one piece, one can recognize the simplicity of lines as if drawn with own stroke of a brush. Fine and dynamic lines leaving no sharp edges behind.As working with textile, patterns were cut out of copper plates and stitched together by using welding techniques to create a lining with some parts are left visible and others concealed. Besides gaining stability in the structure, this process leaves each piece with a more unique and personal character rather than just a frozen item.   All surfaces are polished resulting in a soft and pleasant touch as well as a constant play of light and reflections. The appearance is present but remains light and timeless. ” Valentin Loellmann
