Luxury Design, Past & Present
Carton Bureau Black: Sébastien de Ganay, multi-disciplinary artist, brings to Rauminhalt the latest creation from his innovative Carton Series sculptures: a desk of purest minimalist line where fluidity meets practicality and where efficiency in construction is paramount. Usually these delightfully animated yet functional aluminum painted works run the creative gamut with a sleek surprise around every corner: fully functional chairs and tables with human dimensions and ergonomics convey the impression of having been un-folded from cardboard boxes. One principle is that the shape of the Carton sculptures could in theory be unfolded and then be folded back into regular, rectangular cardboard boxes, as if the artwork was made from one piece. Here again de Ganay's care for top craftsmanship and ultra-rational form does not neglect comfort which he always seeks for his carton sculptures. The thickness of the aluminium is just barely one centimetre and produces the feeling of an unfolding ribbon like frozen into desk-shape. This sinuosity with a slight labyrinthian profile creates the peculiar time reference pervading all the works of the carton series.
All RAL colors are available and sculptures are produced in an edition of 8 unique originals (+2APs), and can be made to measure.
