French designer Michael Malapert, founder of design brand The M Family, has sent me his latest project – the Dark Side Collection, a series of objects inspired by 3D modeling techniques and by the cutting art of origami facets.
The collection revisits several types of basketry and tableware, showing the ‘dark side’ of the rough structure hidden in the object. Only the graphic skeleton is preserved and the matter had been reduced to a minimum, making each object solid, delicate and fragile at the same time.
