DESIGNER : VALENTIN LOELLMANN
The «Spring/Summer» collection from the German designer Valentin Loellmann can be seen as both a continuation and a reflection of the approach developed in the Fall/Winter collection. The Spring/Summer collection, to which new pieces will be added from time to time, consists of pieces with an oak top around which a metal body is modeled. The forged structure of the base resembles the organic forms of pieces grown together, though here obtained with a cold material. The oak top is slightly bent, burned and sanded with wax, resulting in a matte, leathery finish. The electroformed copper body sculpted around the seat introduces a cool material, but radiates a warm glow that contrasts and complements the dark oak top and mirrors the season from which it sprang through its changing colors.
With the coffee table, Valentin Loellmann digresses from this guideline, relative to the new materials he has used. He innovates by working bronze and resin, offering a reinterpretation of his own collection. The work on forms is essentially the same (smooth lines, organic curves and joints treated) but the aesthetic result differs. Presented in a new light, the Spring/Summer collection allows new visual and tactile experiences, we rediscover it...
