Although Blandet's fabrication process is at times wild and uncontrolled, the result is surprising in its intentionality and strong lines.
Each work is extremely accurately crafted, making reference to the aesthetics and proportions of furniture-making history.
This tension between the difficult process of working with aluminum and the simplicity and cleanness of the design unearths and reveals the possibilities of the material. Blandet’s new works are soft, they play with perception and are full of light. Minimalist in their conception, the details, possibilities, humor and even poetry in the works create sculptures that contain a history rooted much deeper than their purity first suggests.
