Marlène Huissoud is a French-born and British based, experimental designer. Her work has been exhibited worldwide in major Institutions such as Chamber New York, Design Miami Basel and Design Museum Barcelona.
We introduce to our audience the survey of Marlène’s newest works including Cocoon Collection, Magnetic Forces and Of Insects & Men.
The first series was born form the intipration of the fascinating world of insects.
„The piece has been made by an accumulation of hundreds of
silkworm’s cocoons and are then varnished with a thin layer of a natural honeybee bio resin. The slow process of the making of the piece underline the beauty of the insect world and defend a slow
process in the making of those alien look pieces”, the designer says. Magnetic Forces was created due to Marlène’s fascination of the talismans as a parts of our existence. The last one, simply titled Of Insects & Men is a result of a exploration of the relationship between two coexisting, yet often conflicting beautiful creatures.
