Olivier Bacin of LABO agency accompanies David Lange, manufacturer of PMMA, in the renewal of its offer available exclusively online. Olivier Bacin goes beyond mono-material and offers a new collection that combines leather and PMMA: armchai and coffee table. A first collaboration with a designer for this manufacturer that triggers a real dynamic to evolve its brand.
David Lange has always devoted its unique French expertise to creating outstanding furniture. Here, shapes, colours, materials and textures are reinvented, and a team works closely with talented designers to offer customers creations infused with expertise and creativity, modernity and innovation, quality and conceptual originality.
David Lange’s expert creative practice takes place in its workshops in Burgundy, and its highly specialist craftspeople make furniture both on request and in batches.The brand was launched in 1969 by two Parisian artisans, Anne-Marie David and Paul Lange. The company specialises in making furniture out of clear plastic acrylic (or PMMA). The items they create become a beautiful part of European and international decors and are, in this sense, contemporary classics.
The workshops are open-plan and managed using the kaizen approach, while the David Lange factory employs expert carpenters and cabinet-makers, as well as computer-aided production techniques. It has been awarded the EPV label for decorative works – in other words, French “living heritage” status – for its partially industrialised, top-quality furniture production.
Architecture and design company LABO is redefining our habits and the ways we categorise objects, all with the aim of improving our daily lives and facing up to modern-day issues.LABO’s ambition is to use material to create experiences that expand our typical notion of what space and objects mean.
Olivier Bacin, LABO ’s founder, wants to give people a “living creation” in which the ways we perceive space and light intersect with functionality and practicality. At the heart of this process is a dialogue between different project contributors, including engineers, artisans, retailers and makers. By reinterpreting spaces and usages, LABO positions itself in the realm of the unexpected, allying emotion with functionality without losing any sense of practicality.
