Clarisse Design

Durban-based French artist Xavier Clarisse's line of handcrafted leather lighting is inspired by the subtropical foliage and vegetation found in coastal South Africa. Each piece is handmade in his studio and is crafted from quality, locally sourced vegetable tanned leather. As an artist he finds inspiration in the process of exploring materials and likes to experiment with these in both established ways and those of his own developing. Running through Xavier's work is a theme of the theatricality of the object itself, of interactivity, movement and playfulness.
