FELIPE RIBON // Design and mutations

To close this colombian chapter, we have decided to present you FELIPE RIBON‘s works. The work of this half french and colombian designer is currently on display at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris the in Double-Je exhibition.

Nothing could be better than beautiful pictures of some of FELIPE RIBON‘s projects to understand our crush for this amazing designer :

Osmos

Osmos is a suspended fragrance diffuser made in solid silver by the goldsmith Nicolas Marishael based on an idea from FELIPE RIBON. This object contains fragrant seeds which release molecules when they are skimed by a draught. The perfume is stirred at the same time as it is diffused.  The challenge was, for the artisan and the designer, to revisit a cassolette made in 1750 by the goldsmith Daniel-Jean Joubert.

Vessels

Vessels is a serie of objets created in a pure sensorial goal. Their shape is the result of an symbolic union between two geometric shapes. The feel is at the center of this process.

Oozing Tears

Oozing tears is a contemporary piece of ballet for two dancers that uses as a starting point, the classical theme of The young lady and Death composed by Schubert in 1824. Between circus, dance and theater this piece searches to awake the fragile link between those three  worlds. The scene proposes a sharp but yet unbalanced place where the acrobat and the dancer can encounter. The designer FELIPE RIBON expressed dancers’s moves in a video.
