Levitating Lines: Formes du Vent by Olivier Bacin of LABO Architecture

Design by Olivier Bacin (LABO) for David Lange , pictures by VIA , le French design

Fluidity is what defines Formes du vent (Wind Forms) designed by Olivier Bacin of LABO architecture for plexiglass manufacturer David Lange. The collection of three coffee tables takes the sand dunes or snowbanks formed by the wind as inspiration. These timeless and yet practical designs bring a bit of poetry to FestiveNESS.

Formes du Vent by Olivier Bacin (LABO Architecture) for David Lange

Behind the collection Formes du vent is a unique collaboration between designer and manufacturer. The result is a design that incorporates flexible lines that break with the seventies tradition of plexiglass through the incorporation of leather trays. The contrast of the geometric legs with the inverted dune-like trays creates a floating softness. The top contains a pouch that adds further practicality to the design. The project follow’s Bacin’s exploration of material to create unique forms that provide new experiences of objects in the everyday.
