Simon K. Q. LI
The unity of heaven and human
The most important of these concepts of harmony between man and his environment is the idea of “the unity of man and heaven”, which derives from an ancient Chinese philosophy. This concept of the unity of nature and man suggests following the laws of nature in order to achieve harmony between man and nature.
Chinese architecture varies from region to region. Jiangxi is the origin of the “situation school” of Seng Shui. The “three primary colours” of green, white and black adopted by the architecture of the Gan school reflect and complement the colours of nature, which is the best example of the concept of the unity of heaven and man in Chinese thought.
Simon K. Q. LI has spent over a decade travelling to more than 1,600 ancient villages in Jiangxi. He has discovered a wealth of secret architecture that has never been known to the outside world.
Meditation in Art
Jean-Charles Pigeau :
An idealist, a tireless walker and an adventurer, Jean-Charles Pigeau has been a nomadic artist for over twenty years, working to promote exchanges between cultures.
Stèle 2023 is the result of his 2015 visit to the Buddhist site of Longmen in China. The caves and niches of Longmen house the largest and most impressive collection of Chinese artworks from the Northern Wei and Tang dynasties (316 – 907).
These works, whose subjects relate exclusively to the Buddhist religion, represent the apogee of Chinese stone sculpture. Faced with the monumental scale of over 100,000 Buddha sculptures carved out of the mountain, ranging in size from the miniscule to the monumental, he created this sculpture.
Beibei YANG :
Beibei YANG is an outstanding designer in China. She is a graduate of the Textile University of China and the Paris fashion school ESMOD. She is the designated stylist for the most famous Chinese stars.
She is the founder of the “Silk Road Reflections” world touring exhibition showcasing Chinese embroidery, organised in Japan, Russia, Mauritius, Germany, Mexico, Australia, Egypt, Singapore and Myanmar.
She is also an artist at heart. Her dual disciplinary culture enables her to express an atypical style. Her paintings combine Western techniques with a Chinese touch. The colours are vivid and harmonious.
Through her four works, she takes us on a dreamy journey through the picturesque landscapes of China. “I’ve always wanted to create work that conveys a message highlighting the beauty of Chinese culture,” explains Beibei YANG.
FRENCH DESIGN supports companies in their creative transformation, incubates their projects and contributes to their promotion. Two brands will be on show to demonstrate their innovative concepts and their commitment to a circular economy.
Matière Grise :
Metalwork through design
Matière Griseis a specialist in the manufacture of metal furniture. Director Ruben Jochimek is passionate about his work. Their products sublimate metalwork through design.
This touch of creativity, combined with a sense of function, enables the company to turn preconceptions about its favourite material on their head.
Their raw material, metal, whether steel or aluminium, is a material that for many years has benefited from a well-developed collection and recycling circuit.
Boutures d’objets :
Eco-design and Innovation
Boutures d’objets is an eco-design studio and publisher specialising in the manufacture of high-end objects using innovative, recycled or bio-sourced materials.
GEOM is a collection of objects and small furniture designed by Sára Kele. The shapes, inspired by the Bauhaus school and Suprematism, express confidence, stability and tranquillity. What the objects have in common is that they represent an incomplete circle, creating an opening to new possibilities. The clean, timeless lines bring singular materials to the fore, continuing the tradition of the Boutures objects: two new innovative, sustainable materials – made from shell fragments and linen fibres – have joined the collection.
This project is the winner of the WORTH II Partnership Projects competition, which aims to inspire innovation through creative connections across Europe.
Designers are invited to imagine and invent a new aesthetic with ECOBAMBOO fibre fabrics.
