"Virgo" Black Anodized Aluminum Open Bookcase Designed by Xavier Lust for Driade

US$4,620per item

About

"Virgo" is a black anodized aluminum open structure and shelves, designed by Xavier Lust and manufactured by Driade. Indoor use only. DIMENSIONS: D. 11.8", W. 47.2", H. 78.7" "Virgo" is an "under tension" structure which assumes the typological image of a bookcase but it actually leads us to think about concave and convex surfaces relation, as well as about the energy of a bow-string. The “composition of forces” is clearly expressed by the finally achieved equilibrium. So thanks to its sculptural form, Virgo can be used as a wall bookcase and, above all, can be placed in the middle of a room. XAVIER LUST studied interior design at Institut Saint Luc before opening his own studio in Brussels. In 2000, Xavier Lust started to design for MDF Italia, an ongoing relationship which was the start of his collaboration with leading international producers such as Driade, De Padova, Cerruti Baleri, Fiam, Extremis. His work is clearly identifiable through the visible tension he gives to his objects, and the curves inspired by his innovative (de)formation process of metallic surfaces. He has received dozens of awards including a Compasso d’Oro. His work has appeared in over 50 exhibitions and is a regular feature in international design publications. He's a regularly invited guest lecturer at leading art and design institutions around the world. "A wonderful aspect of Xavier’s work is the illusion of lightness and motion", writes the Russian artist Olga Bozhko. "In his designs he manages to express what seems impossible. It seems as though his works were not created; they are born".
