DRAWING GLASS AT CHRISTIAN LACROIX BOUTIQUE


A glass project related to the creative process – starting from the frame of mind that brings an idea into physical existence. There is a long journey that can be undertaken as a “new” process to design objects. Stepping back from digital tools, the Fabrica design team embarks on exploratory hand drawings, scaled 1:1 compositions, let’s say representations made of lines on paper.

A glass blower reads these 14 drawings (without measurements) and makes his own interpretation of them, giving them a three dimensional existence. This project is a way of showing how design is a practice related to communication, how a designer succeeds to make an idea readable, and how the producer receives the main information to make an idea reality. The basis of using glass, a transparent and sensitive material, gives unique beauty to the objects and, in a contradictory way, brings the presence of the black on white drawings to the same level as the existing piece.

Drawing Glass is a limited edition collection of 14 artworks and will be available for purchase at the Christian Lacroix Boutique for all the duration of the first exhibition, during the Paris Design Week 2013. The final artwork is composed of an original drawing and of an original glass piece, both autographed and numbered.

The project credits the participation of Formafantasma, as special guest designers, and Massimo Lunardon, as glass craftsman.
