Both graduates of the Institut Supérieur des Arts de Toulouse, Irina Pentecouteau and Cécile Laporte make up a very special duo, since their shared passion for Latin America propelled them onto a journey that would change their vision of design and creativity.
After meeting and talking to local weavers, the two designers decided to use their work to convey their love for hand-made objects. Thus they started a series of transformable objects that can be “sewn” and customized. Their lamps, diaries and stools are in constant evolution, able to adapt to tastes and contexts, the opposite of standardization. End users are put at the center of use itself, and become the protagonists of the whole process, bringing back great dignity to craftsmen’s work, and demanding a reflection of the value of things.
