Diamond is Charlotte Lancelot’s new collection of outdoor kilims for GAN, made from 100% recycled PET.
The designer’s goal was to create a multi-faceted colored diamond, thanks to the superposition of different translucent geometric figures. The result offers fascinating visual effects of transparency and gradients that show that beauty and sustainability, at GAN, always go hand in hand.
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.
