Charlotte Lancelot, a regular collaborator of GAN, proposes with her new CRYSTAL collection a game for the visual perception of the observer.
Coloured circles seem to overlap in motion creating a three dimensional illusion and making room for different colour gradients. This is how wool, thick and resistant, recreates the transparency of glass in a series available in three colour variants: Neutal, Red and Blue.
Charlotte Lancelot was born in Brussels in 1980 and studied at La Cambre where she qualified in Industrial Design in 2003.
She worked with architect and designer Alain Berteau for two years before setting up her own studio, with which she took part in the Milan Satellite Trade Show in 2006. The same year she was chosen by Wallpaper magazine to organise the Global édit 06 exhibition in the Armani Theatre during Designweek.
She has taken part in numerous trade fairs and national exhibition, mainly in the context of the 100% designed in Brussels selection. She collaborates with companies such as Ligne Roset, Koziol, Konstantin, Slawinki, Kidslab, Easyoga….In 2007, she participated, together with the Sdesign company, in the creation of the image of Brussels’ new taxis. Since 2007 she has been teaching design at the Instituto de Arquitectura de Interiores de St Luc. In 2010, the Museum of Modern Art, Luxembourg, commissioned her to create a table set. The same year, her work was shown in the “transculturelle” exhibition focusing on new trends, created by Elisabeth Leriche during the Maison et Objet trade fair.
Her work is characterised by emotional attachment to the objects around her. Ecology, aesthetics, modernisation of old techniques and improvements to living conditions are her main concerns.
