Laboratoire Textile - Savoir-faire - Imaginer



Lucie Leroux designs objects for the home with pure lines and graphic motifs inspired by nature and geometry.

At the crossroads of design and arts and crafts, she combines textile work with a meticulous, functional design where every detail is carefully thought out.

His approach is part of an ongoing quest for the right form, until the form imposes itself through the emotion it arouses.




Thanks to her expertise in textile design, Lucie Leroux prints each motif by hand with water-based inks using the screen-printing process.
The patterns applied on the fabrics have been designed to accompany the movement of the folds of each light fixtures.
First drawn in two dimensions, the pattern then becomes a three-dimensional graphic element once the final shape is folded.

Tone on tone or contrasted, the pattern plays with light to create an elegant play of shadows and lights.



From a simple strip of fabric to a three-dimensional lamp, the folding stage gives the final shape to each lamp, which requires up to 2.50 meters of fabric.

The folds are first marked using custom-made templates. Then each lamp is patiently folded by hand, one fold at a time. Discovering objects take shape is a constantly renewed surprise. 

Discovering each object gradually take shape through these precise, repeated gestures is a constantly renewed surprise. 



At once simple and complex, the folding technique allows us to create elegant shapes with pure lines in volume, without sewing or adding reinforcement. All models are designed to generate as little cutting waste as possible. Every off-cut is conserved and recycled.
