Wendy Andreu is a craft designer communicating through her use of materials . She matches matter , people and spaces . Regen is a collection of carpets and seating elements made in cotton rope and silicone. They were shaped directly in 3D around strong metal templates. The technique « REGEN » that has been developed since 2014 is used on a different level on this project. The textile containers that are produced are no longer used hollow but are filled with soft materials to create a comfortable seating element. The 8 Legged Stools on Wheels are made following the idea of absurd complexity. The function of the object is emphasized by over exaggerating its features. The 8 legs bring a certain heaviness to the piece that needs to be carried by wheels. The sculptural stools are carefully handcrafted in steel, and patinated following two types of hues: Black Shaded color way and Decay color way.

Delvaux is the oldest fine leather luxury goods company in the world, an authentic Belgian brand since 1829. The house has designed over 3000 handbags and continues to create contemporary classics, which are characterised by elegance, imagination and a dash of humour. Damien Gernay places emphasis on experimentation and inhabits a world bridging art and design. For those who want it, his objects may be given and have a function, but they can equally be regarded as purely aesthetic forms. Gernay is a designer who also loves working with leather and has used it throughout his career, so the meeting with Delvaux is a wonderful match of skills and creative minds. The collaboration has produced three sculptural objects that suggest the swift movement of an instantaneous act in combination with master craftsmanship of the highest level, the latter defined by time-consuming work of precision and meticulousness.
