Gallery FUMI presents an exhibition by Studio Glithero with a furniture project started in 2009 that experiments with rods, bamboo sticks, bronze and gum-paper.
Gallery FUMI presents “Les French Collection” by Glithero, an ongoing furniture project that started by British designer Tim Simpson and Dutch designer Sarah van Gameren in 2009.
The first set of works produced consisted of a variety of storage units made from gum-paper wrapped structures with bronze frames. The frames were assembled by binding together bamboo rods and wound string, and then submerged into solid bronze using the traditional lost-wax technique. The collection evolution landed into a series of pieces that harness the values of traditional, timeless disciplines, while challenging our perception of process. Recent works are now cast entirely in bronze and finished with polished natural bronze and gun-black patina.
