carpenters workshop gallery | paris is pleased to announce the spanish artist nacho carbonell and his solo exhibition ‘forest’ in the marais space this upcoming fall.
after the solo exhibition’s success last year in london, the gallery will be showcasing a selection of carbonell’s lamp sculptures from his ‘cocoon’ series including new works such as his ‘floor lamp concrete base’ range in central paris. created in collaboration with the gallery and produced using a unique form of plaster invented by the artist, the works incorporate sand and textile hardener which is then set around a steel frame.
skillfully handcrafted, the ‘cocoon’ lamp series is a culmination of unique pieces. the works are organically-shaped, semi-transparent cocoons, varying in form, fitted around loosely structured sand-colored mesh, illuminating from the inside so that the light diffuses, producing a natural warm glow.
each one different from the other by varying in colours, shape and size, the series includes several floor lamps as well as four hybrid works called ‘table cocoons’. these pieces act as both lamps as well as tables encapsulating the imaginative and playful essence of nacho carbonell.
