About the designer

Johan Viladrich
French designer, based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands

A pure design with essential forms is what characterises the aesthetic of Johan Viladrich.

In his work he aims to reveal the inherent beauty of materials through refined surface treatments and subtle combinations. He uses the mass of metals such as bronze, steel or copper to create radical structures in which all superfluous elements have disappeared.

Johan attaches as much importance to the final appearance of his pieces as to the mechanisms making them exist. Bolts, straps and joints are magnified and turned into intrinsic parts of a whole. The designs are transparent and each piece is a search for balance, only reachable through a meticulous work of proportions.

ABOUT THE PIECE
The RB02-Bronze bench is composed of two brushed plates leaning onto three bead blasted and lightly brushed tubes; held together with mirror polished cylinders and natural rubber bands.

This radical assemblage is the result of a continuous investigation into rational forms and archetypes. By using industrially produced elements and non-definitive connections, it questions the position of the designer as a maker, and the value usually attached to the trace of the hand. Here, as there is no patina nor welding, no stylizing nor drawing, all marks of the maker have vanished. What remains is the purity of the material, highlighted via different surface treatments, and a rigourous work of proportions.
