PAD LONDON 2016 - Design Crosses the Channel - LECLAIREUR

From October 5 to 9, Leclaireur took over PAD London. It is in the heart of the Mayfair district that the design fair celebrated this year, with 65 handpicked exhibitors, its tenth anniversary, bringing together the greatest artists of the profession and new sensibilities.

Both lovers of design, Martine and Armand Hadida proposed two different spaces and two different atmospheres, offering to the eyes a set of creations by Nino Calos, Von Pelt, Studio Tangent, Ronald Mallory and Pierre Bonnefille.

The kinetic paintings of Nino Calos piqued the curiosity of the visitors, hypnotized and seduced by the luminous triptych with a moving background that creates a visual poetry. The moment of grace was prolonged by the table of Studio Tangent, whose shiny black, lit by LEDs, celebrates the meeting between the organic and technology. Bubbles implode on the surface, after the light seems to have given them life.

Ronald Mallory's frames offered a playful moment to visitors who could, by turning them over, see the mercury being released and revealing a new, ever-changing shape. In the second space of Leclaireur, the director, designer and alchemist of color Pierre Bonnefille opened a haven of peace in the heart of the show with the Bronze Box, a place where time is like suspended. Four bronze paintings encircle the viewer, projecting on him a light conducive to meditation.
