Sophie Mallebranche transmutes metal into textile
Since 1998, in her workshop, Sophie Mallebranche’s creations are akin to primary arts: architecture, sculpture and painting. Her stainless steel, tin, brass and bronze weaves, combined with silicone, silk or linen threads, play with the materials and their intrinsic proprieties so as to reshape space, sculpt light and release the fantastic possibilities of color.
The collection is divided into three color ranges:
The Essentials (a dozen references) which include grey, pearl white, champagne, warm gold, black.
The Naturals (twenty references), which enrich the essentials with satiny grey colors of silver, shades of copper, coffee, brown and dark
brown; and finally, The Ultra- chromatics (twenty-two references).
Each product is identified by a specific number. Even numbers refer to regular weaves, odd numbers to irregular weaves.
