Solid Tempest is a work about stopping time. In the workshop, we developed a technique to capture moving fabric. The folds of the textile in weightlessness are stiffened to obtain sculptures, halfway between flexibility and rigidity.

These shapes, all unique, are used to create the universe of the SS20 Season of Première Vision. The textiles are projected through the space and hang on the furniture to give an effect of continuous movement on the stand. A six-metre high statue, entirely composed of blades, reinforces this idea of “motionless movement”.

To counterbalance this lightness, bricks with graphic effects are used for presentation furniture.
