Conceived and handmade in the Durban, South Africa studio of Xavier Clarisse, each piece is crafted from quality, locally sourced, vegetable tanned leather. A stainless steel skeleton transforms the flat leather fronds into a three-dimensional hanging sculpture.

French artist Xavier Clarisse spent his early years cultivating a passion for design. He attended ‘L’Ecole Nationale des Beaux Arts’ specialising in sculpture and product design and has worked in France, the UK and now South Africa. Living in South Africa Xavier is inspired by his local surroundings - both nature and the local aesthetic. As a maker 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. Xavier's current area of design focus is lighting and he has a range of sculptural light designs most notably the Delicious Light and the Blade Light.
