Döppel Studio is back at the Collectible Fair 2022 in Brussels with a new collection of furniture inspired by rock cairns.
Cairns may stand alone, in clusters, or in a network of related cairns. Nowadays cairns are most of the time seen at the tops of mountains and hills. They are collective artwork, each hikers marking his passage by a rock adding to the rest of the pile.
"This collection is a project where the studio returned to a practice of manual sculpture, in search of randomness as a creative process in opposition to digital 3D work. The Studio wanted to work on trompe l'œil and balance, drawing inspiration from cairns. Passionate about rock shapes, they sculpted pebbles that they superimpose and contrast with pure geometric shapes. Then modifying the role of wood by giving it mineral forms thanks to the technique of "brushing wood" in this collection of furniture." - Boon Room
