Atelier BL 119 - Pontoon

Oak centerpiece conceived by Atelier BL 119 as a simple and primary architecture, recalling a pontoon.

 

This centerpiece has been conceived as a simple and primary architecture. Its shape recalls a pontoon or a footbridge. The tray is maintained by a series of randomly positioned pillars. This building system creates a complex yet harmonious composition. As a stand, it enhances the elements which are placed on it. The sandblasted wood finish gives it a raw aspect. This piece is both ethereal and sharp due to its wood sections, the distribution of its pillars and the way it is mounted. In the wake of Mies Van Der Rohe’s architecture, this object appears neutral and contemplative thanks to a design based on the use of raw materials and a plain structure.

Atelier BL119


Hervé Dixneuf and Grégory Blain, who joined forces in 2007 to create the “Atelier BL119”, make up an atypical duo, far from the usual line of strategy one comes across in the work of young designers. Their difference in the realm of design resides in their culture of the “project”, in which the elaboration of forms that are slightly out of sync with everyday life come to destabilize our domestic world and the way we perceive things and space. These projects emerge from research nourished by cultural influences and a quest for harmony between drawing and functionality. Projects born from the vision of the missing object, the desire to explore texture, new usages, to visit and (re)form objects, and draw them differently.
