Manon Oller

Inspired by architecture and the modular and liberated design of the Memphis group, Manon Oller favours method of play and experimentation. The same form, excavated, cut out and then assembled, nested or closed, can give rise to a multitude of objects questioning our reflexes. When facing La Mano Studio’s creations, these same reflexes only lead us to dead ends and force us to grasp the object, to manipulate it, to play with it in order to discover the use that can be made of it: the diabolo becomes in turn a carafe, a vase, a sculpture, a capital placed on the ground and transformed into a seat.
