Valentin Löllmann and constant evolution

Valentin Löllmann, a designer from the Netherlands, has a unique approach to developing their latest collection, m.&mme.

The foundational ideas of the collection are Velentin’s natural curiosity about materials, their ‘travels and the histories they tell’. The pieces in these collections are treated as ‘living organisms’, evolving over time, merging with other elements in different ways and developing into something new, whilst maintaining a constant essence. In Velentin’s own words, ‘each new pieces expresses both the memory of the former, as well as a possible direction of the pieces still to come’ – almost like family.

Each piece is handmade from old bankirai wood and reinforced with a polyester skin. They have a dream-like, eerie and almost surrealist aesthetic, that whilst may not be for some, has a lovely quality.
