François Bauchet is showing nine pieces of the series called 'cellae'. The new work is a composition of storage units, tables of different heights and shelves.
Bauchet is working with a unique material for this collection. He has used clear-colored felt regularly punctured and soaked in a polymer-tinted resin. The unity of the material echoes the unity of the design and its rhythm.
The formal vocabulary repeats itself in an identical manner, following a single modular logic. Only dimensions change, in response to the scale of each piece, while remaining attentive to its function.
cellae is a line anchored with repetition and marked by its fracture. A pace and discontinuity governed by variations: the clear concentration of vocabulary reinforces its strength, while provoking an emotional response. It is within these self-inflicted constraints – material, drawing, number, functions – that the force of this collection persists.
