Mathieu Lehanneur : Inverted Gravity

French designer Mathieu Lehanneur once again sets out to conquer the world of design with his unique furniture series, Inverted Gravity, presented at Art Basel - Design Miami (USA). A sculptural collection made of marble blocks arranged on bubbles of blown glass that would almost make us fall backwards!

Soft landing for the Inverted Gravity collection signed by French designer Mathieu Lehanneur. Presented on the other side of the Atlantic during the latest edition of Art Basel - Design Miami, this set comprising cabinet, table, console, bedside and bench, is inspired by the stories and videos of life aboard the Space Station International (ISS), a ship in orbit around the world developed by NASA, allowing its future explorers to travel the head in the stars.


"I dreamed of a world without gravity, like a floating state of matter where the notions of heavy and light would have no more meanings. ", Mathieu Lehanneur, designer.

The series, as floating in weightlessness, seems to free itself from the laws of gravity. Each piece consists of a block of marble and solid onyx resting on delicate bubbles blown glasses supporting up to 250 kilos. Their creator - known for having printed the movements of the water on the surface of rock blocks exposed at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London in September 2016 - here pushes once again the advanced technical prowess with a subtle game of balance between the materials.

A minimalist collection borrows from limited edition custom-made poetry.
