“Charles Schambourgâs company masters the art of weaving leather however today its material is only used as a cover.
The idea is to create a leather basket that would stand on its own. To do so I worked on two aspects : folding process (in reference to origami) and steel springs flexibility. The combination of these two factors led me in conceiving a basket that would reveal the weaving knowhow by showing both side of the textile.
This project is the result of a collaboration between ecal/Virginie Garcia and Charles Schambourg. This project was exhibited in Brussels during Brussels Design September.” cargocollective.com/virginiegarcia
