table “Brass” 

“Transforming massive brass plates into elegant, friendly and light creations was main motivation and challenge to the latest pieces. They result in a series of unique objects to use. Thin and slightly bent legs open up into a metal body holding a smooth wooden top. Two opposite materials, both technically and sensually different, relate with their contrasts and merge into one piece. The realization refers to the creation of custom fitted clothing – haute couture. Pieces that are constructed by hand from start to finish, with extreme attention to detail, using time-consuming techniques. When thinking about shapes and movement of one piece, one can recognize the simplicity of lines as if they were drawn with a single stroke of a brush. Fine and dynamic lines with no sharp edges. Like working with fabric, patterns were cut out of brass plates and stitched together by using welding techniques to create a lining in which some parts are left visible and others concealed. Besides providing stability to the structure, this process gives each piece a unique and personal character. All surfaces are polished resulting in a soft and pleasant tactility as well as creating a constant dialogue between light and reflections.” Valentin Loellmann

About Valentin Lollmann
Valentin Loellmann was born in Germany ( 1983 ). He grew up in an atmosphere of creativity, or better: shared creativity. Since his childhood, Valentin has been evolving in a family in which the passion for creative expression is a common impulse. This naturally trig­gered in him the awareness for a potentially artistic development. As a kid, curiosity, the desire to discover, and a special sensibility regarding his surroundings, laid the founda­tions to his creative spirit and ambition. He has carried these qualities on through his personal evolution. They kept influencing his work in different contexts and along different states of mind. An experience, a mood or a feeling in relation with his direct surroundings can be the impetus to create. Whether perceived as a collector, a dreamer, a wood worker, a designer or an artist, Valentin continuously aim to express the balance and reciprocity between the past and the present, the old and the new, the natural and the artificial. In 2010, just after graduating from the Academy of fine Arts in Maastricht , Valentin founded his own studio in the center of Maastricht. The acclaim of the pieces displayed at art fairs such as Design Miami/Basel , Salone del Mobile Milano, and Pavillion Art and Design – where the Spring-Summer console has been awarded PAD London’s Best Con­temporary Design Piece in 2013 – have also been of great reward and influence. His pieces were exhibited at : Grand-Hornu, MUDAC (Lausanne), STEDELIJK Museum Amsterdam. These experiences have opened a new spectrum in which reflection on and dedication to the process is almost an end in itself, giving a new impulse to his work.
