Limited Edition of 125 pieces
Laurence Bonnel creates architectural silhouettes, almost primitive, which a great presence emanates. The motif of the human, the couples and the crowd, recurrent and central in her imagination, is refined to the point of formal stylization.
“I have always been fascinated by the know-how. I opened a gallery in which I expose art furniture and works with a common characteristic: the excellence of realization. The discovery of the Daum workshops was part of my passion toward the arts and crafts. This particular relationship with the biggest artists of its time for more than a century, has been a part of Daum well before many other luxury brands, creating a very strong link with Art. For me, crystal remains a magical and mysterious material. During the visit to the Daum workshops, I realized that the work is quite similar to that of the bronze foundry, even though the material is quite the opposite: fragile and unpredictable. Each sculpture, however reproducible, takes life differently, and becomes unique. Thanks to the know-how of Daum, the crystal gives a new meaning, a particular emotion, to my work.” Laurence Bonnel
