designboom: how did a partnership between we and LASVIT begin?

 

humberto campana: a partnership with LASVIT began dual years ago, when we were invited to revisit their bureau in a czech republic. it was illusory since a atmosphere of a factory, during a initial peek seemed as if we were inside a candy factory. we was totally dismayed by a potion in a potion state. during that time, we due to a LASVIT group to make a collection of chandeliers desirous by this initial knowledge — a initial emotions that we had when we entered a factory. it was engaging since me and my hermit stayed alongside a glassblowers, selecting opposite colors and inserting them in a potion in this potion state. it was a really engaging process. it took roughly one year to rise those chandeliers. they were launched final year during a salone, and this year we due to go forward with this collection to make some objects for table: glasses, vases and jugs, following a same concept. a engaging partial of this routine is initial we make a potion intent and afterwards a tone is extrinsic after. a outcome is dual opposite textures: a one of a intent itself, and a one of a tone vocalization aloud from a square formulating a tangible pleasing surface. it’s not only a fusion, and this is what is engaging about a project. it looks like genuine caramels!

DB: can we speak a small a bit about a hurdles we face in building a ‘candy’ collection?

HC: a plea that we faced in this routine was a multiple of a colors. infrequently when we use a tone with another, one arrange of absorbs a other. so, we figured out that it would be good if we could work with dual opposite levels of colors. one light, and one that is darker in sequence to give a intent some depth. that was a categorical plea for this collection, though a rest was really easy, really flexible. we also like to work with a idea of imperfection. a colors were put on a intent really incidentally though any kind of rigidity. that’s what’s fun about a pieces. any one is unique, and we will never make a same dual objects twice. this is a sorcery of operative in this sense.

DB: your studio works opposite a lot of opposite mediums. how did we find operative with glass?

HC: my hermit and we adore new propositions. element in sold is really critical in a work. a intent is always innate out of a material, afterwards we pierce onto a function. so, infrequently we have a material, though we do not know what it will be remade into, either it is a lamp, or a sofa, or a glass… personification with a element is what drives us to a final object. over a 30+ year practice, we have been operative with several materials — from clay to bamboo to bronze to leather to cardboard. it’s really intense, and we have constructed a outrageous operation of products. it’s engaging to observe how a materials we have been operative with over a career can be practical to opposite objects. whenever we need inspiration, we go in hunt of other materials. also, we have been operative utterly a lot with qualification techniques that are disappearing. we are perplexing to rescue traditions that are failing out, and giving them new life and adding a contemporary turn to them in sequence to make them applicable again.

DB: how did we confirm from starting out with chandeliers to transitioning into a collection of tableware. how did this routine evolve?

HC: my hermit and we were really gratified with a candelabrum collection. it was really engaging to observe a lamps transposing with glass. it all happened really spontaneously. a LASVIT group asked us to emanate a collection of eyeglasses and setting formed on a same beliefs and we were happy to do so.
