Furniture collection which defies gravity
Inverted Gravity collection created by Mathieu Lehanneur was presented during this year’s Art Basel…
Through its innovative, poetic, floating collection, Lehanneur has presented his inspiration, he got from International Space Station, while the result was created on a really incredible way.
“I have dreamed about the world without gravity, like a floating state, where notions of heavy and light don’t have any meaning”, says Mathieu.
Inverted Gravity collection presents a new version of physics through its technical and aesthetic feats, creation and amazing technology. Sideboard, dining room table, console, accent table and bench were created as an embodiment of levity on Earth.
Each piece was created from block of marble and onyx, which are placed on bubbles created from blown glass which show their strength and resilience. Each glass bubble can withstand the weight of over two hundred and fifty kilograms, which tells us that fragility is really an illusion.
