A year after New York-based artist, Craig Redman (aka Darcel), collaborated on some fresh fiberglass sculptures with Paris’s colette, he returns with new eye-catching furnishings. The work is a collaboration between Redman and French brand, LAQ.
The meeting of the founders of LAQ, Raphaël and Pascal, with Craig Redman, gave birth to a Darcel shown in 3D, a product of the encounter of contemporary culture and ancient techniques. Made of resin, wood and painted metal, mother-of-pearl and eggshell, this high definition version of Darcel, coming from a psychedelic universe, hip and disillusioned, also offers hidden storage in its eye, like the secretive stately furniture of the seventeenth century. A radical confrontation of periods, styles and ideas!
Starting today, May 2nd, the stools and sculpture will be on display at colette. I cling to my paltry Darcel keychain from last year’s show and mutter the usual refrain: lucky Parisians!
