Technical, precious and phantasmagoric lightings
Visual artist and designer Lucie Le Guen devises objects and spaces with an approach that lies between research design and object design. Her work questions use, form, skill, and technique. Objects are phantasmatic and allegorical, and conceived alongside a functional reality.
Inspired by technology, her work connects traditional and contemporary craft through a process of research and innovation. Objects are developed collectively, through collaboration with manufacturers and craftsmen. Le Guen has a technical and artistic background. Her work poeticizes technology by confronting and connecting these two distinct worlds.
Each project is a search for treasure, and a valuable opportunity for discovery in a given place through collaboration. The value of each project lies in its rarity, dreamy aesthetic and innovative nature.
