Archipelago: Candle Poetry by Florent Degourc
Aug 22, 2012 // Furniture //


We had to discover the designer Florent Degourc during the last edition of Milan with his suspension, Mr. F., edited by Metylos. He’s back today with Archipelago, a project where one finds his poetic side.

Wood (Beech) and blown glass are associated here to compose three islets topped photophores. A true modular home landscape inspired by the volcanic archipelago. As per Florent Degourc, “these islands erupted, silica compounds transformed by craftsmen, we bring to the links between the human environment and the resources it draws to adapt to it.”

Produced in collaboration with the master glassmaker, Dominic Marcade, the Archipelago is now free to edit.
