Where form meets function

French brand LAQ has work with Darcel creator Craig Redman on a capsule furniture collection, employing Redman’s popular character as a central theme.

The meeting of the founders of LAQ, Raphaël and Pascal, with Craig Redman, gave birth to a Darcel shown in 3D, a product of the encounter of contemporary culture and ancient techniques. Made of resin, wood and painted metal, mother-of-pearl and eggshell, this high definition version of Darcel, coming from a psychedelic universe, hip and disillusioned, also offers hidden storage in its eye, like the secretive stately furniture of the seventeenth century. A radical confrontation of periods, styles and ideas!

The collection includes two stools and a sculpture, all three being exhibited at colette in Paris from May 2, 2011.
