Wood turned into lace: a surface preserving the soft and natural touch of the material but made translucent thanks to a laser micro-perforation technique. A textile artist and designer passionate about natural methods, Geneviève Levivier has taken the necessary research and development time to materialise this innovative vision. “The idea was to transform the wood in a noble way, to enhance it without touching its own qualities”, she explains. She then teamed up with designer Alain Berteau to give shape to this new technique. This has produced this duo of objects: a lamp and an acoustic wall panel. A useful object on the one hand and an abstract and geometric work on the other. Two objects whose appearance changes and evolves depending on the observer’s perspective and that bring out the best in one another.
