'Cirkel' collection03. Dec2011
'Cirkel' is the newest object collection from Daphna Isaacs Burggraaf and Laurens Manders aka Dafne Laurens. Galerie Gosserez from Paris will host their exhibition from December 2011 to January 2012.
The new pieces presented in the collection “Cirkel” have a shared basis, the circle. Two dimensional drawings and ideas took shape during the last months in their workshop by modifying this elemental shape. Composing, cutting and twisting the surface, adding or removing lines, applying materials and colour resulted in the design of the new coffee table and wall lights." - Daphne Laurens
"[for Cirkel collection] The two designers tested their ideas by playing with this elementary shape for months in their studio in Eindhoven thus producing their preliminary drawings. Basic forms and lines inspired them. Bauhaus and Russian constructivism were one of their sources of inspiration." - Galerie Gosserez
