Gallery FUMI presents a new collection of works entirely made of tempered glass by French designer Thomas Lemut.

In this new body of work, Lemut challenges the restraints of working with glass to produce functional pieces that simultaneously reflect the designer’s aesthetic language. The key to Lemut’s practice is the celebration of the chosen material, working in a variety of woods, metals and now glass, cut into strips and mechanically assembled instead of welding or gluing each component together.

For GLASS.MEKANO Lemut experiments with glass’ inherent qualities to create solid functional pieces. Lemut has conducted a rigorous investigation to find a valid equation and innovative method of working with glass. The final result is a collection of tempered glass furniture, comprising of a bench, a coffee table, a console, a mirror, a lamp, and a chandelier.

Gallery FUMI

Gallery FUMI is a contemporary design gallery based in Mayfair, London, established in 2008 by Sam Pratt and Valerio Capo. The gallery focuses on high-level, conceptually and aesthetically audacious contemporary designers and artists; each one encompassing the value of craftsmanship, traditional techniques and innovated new technologies. Objects are usually hand made by the designer, in a small workshop context, or in small batch production by specialist crafts practitioners. Many use traditional techniques such as carving, glassblowing, cabinetry, lacquering, meticulous hand assemblage. Others would also disassemble, burn or apply digital technologies in their making. There is an emphasis on the satisfyingly tactile as well as the purely visual. Great significance is placed on the emotional as well as the practical value of craft. The directors have built enduring creative relationships with institutions, interior designers and collectors alike, and have gained a reputation for applying a very personal and original touch in their selection and curation. They run an ambitious programme of exhibitions alongside a presence at international design fairs.
