Laurence BRABANT lives and works in Paris. A graduate of the Duperré School in Paris, she obtained a Fiacre scholarship for her research project “Inanimate Objects” and self-published her blown glass designs. Her “Petites leçons de choses” pieces, will be joining the FNAC, (National Contemporary Art Collection). On a resident artist’s placement at the Villa Kujoyama in Kyoto (Japan), in partnership with Baccarat she developed the “MANU-facture” project. She is particularly skilled in transparency, glass and crystal, making a name for herself in the fields of the table arts with a poetic flair, creating tailored lighting solutions and unique pieces. Among others, she works with Christian Tortu, Salviati, Cristallerie Saint Louis, Louis Vuitton, Galeries Lafayette, Glenmorangie, Baccarat and Starck for JP Gaultier.
For Veronese, she has created the BIJOU BIJOU collection, a collection presented during the 2004 Designer’s Days venue. BIJOU BIJOU is a true gem of a collection, with its immensely long sautoir chains and swing-blown “jewellery” that can be combined in vibrant sparkles of light dangling around you, as if around your neck. The sautoir designed for the collection’s centrepiece may be complemented with additional lighting elements.
