The London based Studio Glithero was founded by Tim Simpson and Sarah Gameren who met at the Royal College of Art. One of their latest installations is ‘Les French’, an series of furniture composed of cast bronze based and lightweight storage volumes.

“We first create ad-hoc configurations of bamboo, binding the joints with wound string, These frames are then sent to a bronze foundry and through a process of loss material casting, the fragile and unlikely structures transform to structural and permanent casts in bronze.”

“For the top part, with no predetermined idea in mind, we build the functional volumes of the furniture in response to the bronze pieces. Underlining the friction in permanence and value that takes place in the casting process, we wrap a lightweight fabrication in gum-paper strips.

The project is an exercise in process. It will grow to become a family of unique characters, that entertain a variety of principles for lifting volumes from the ground.”
