In view of the opening of the two-yearly international design exhibition in St Etienne, on November 15th 2008, the museum in Retournac will present the catalogue for the exhibition “The Outlines of Emptiness”, lace and interlace in design.
Amongst all of these designs, you will find side by side, items that are reminiscent of the traditional lace technique, like the chair from Veronique Maire et Patrick de Glo de Besses, the seat of which was designed and made by Nathalie Hubert from Bobbin-lace Teaching Centre in Le Puy-en-Velay, but also some items which use lace techniques in a less conventional way, with unusual material like lace pannels made with steel thread by “Armel Barraud”.
On sale in the Lace Manufactures’ Museum from November 15th 2008
