home camp

exhibition, 2013.


« There is no camp like home »

November 30th, 2013 – January 11th,2014

Opening : Saturday November 30th, 4 – 9 pm

GREAT DESIGN is pleased to present the new collection of works by French designer Alban Le Henry at gallery Essere, from November 30th, 2013 to January 11th, 2014.

HOME CAMP is a family of objects with a « primitive » aesthetic that associate forged iron and different types of natural wood. Normally conceived for outdoors, they are invited inside the exhibition space in order to re-create a domestic camp environment.

Gathered around the logs reinvented by the designer, new wooden pieces of furniture, heavy and light at the same time, with sharp lines, suggest more than one use.

The exhibition is a field of investigation and encounter of natural and more resistant materials like hooks and hangers: forged iron meets with wood to create a new series of coat racks.

On the occasion of HOME CAMP, GREAT DESIGN is pleased to introduce the new marble version of SUNSET lamp: one piece is made of limestone alabaster and the other of Calacatta marble. When the night falls, SUNSET turns on and evokes inside the space that particular feeling of light at dusk. (great design)
