Description/

Totem Blue Moon is a light installation composed of three materials. The neon and the resin so worked that its touch seems to be of silk are opposed to the base in raw oak, square log of wood. Turned off, it is a sculpture of a deep blue night that winks at Brancusi’s Endless Column. Lit, it becomes a luminous sculpture whose resin lets the light pass softly through and questions its own transparency through a soft gradation of blue. Composed of a set of resin modules, it offers us a new reading of this form dear to many designers, as Ettorre Sottsass’s ceramic sculptures or Serge Mouille’s luminous totems, to name but two. Tim Leclabart’s Totem, a sculpture during the day, with its superposition of spherical forms, a sort of First or Last Quarter Moon, leads us poetically into the night.


Tim Leclabart

designer

"Born in 1988, in Paris. After studying art history and curating in contemporary design in London, Tim Leclabart trained as a gallery owner and antique dealer with Jérome de Noirmont, the Carpenters Workshop Gallery, the James Gallery and Alexandre Guillemain. At the same time, he organizes and directs exhibitions and advises young artists. With a transversal approach to Art, Design, Architecture and Decorative Arts, Tim launches into the creation of furniture pieces, oscillating between sculpture and art. He spent several months in Brazil in Rio de Janeiro, in the workshop of Zanini de Zanine, star designer and son of the self-taught architect José Zanine Caldas. It is in the dust emanating from the sanding of the Pau Brasil and with the sound of a radio playing music by Tom Jobim and Caetano Veloso that he experiments his first pieces. His first collection was a tribute to Brazilian modernist architecture and furniture, including the work of Oscar Niemeyer, to whom he has an incomparable admiration. In the form of micro-architectures revisited in the manner of Joaquim Tenreiro, or Massimo Vignelli, the objects are confronted with the viewer's high gaze, in the manner of an aerial view. This new perspective redefines our reading of the works of the famous architect. "
