Spotlight on the winner of the Rado Star Prize France - Prix du Public

The Silhouette project was born following a stay by Dimitry Hlinka in Taiwan’s Nantou region. This is a region famous for its local craftsmanship: bamboo, ceramic, weaving, dyeing, and where the protection of skills is supported by the National Taiwan Craft Research Institute in Caotun.

The structure has been created using the hot bending technique and is made from bamboo and slate thanks to a collaboration with a bamboo master in the Nantou region of Taiwan. Slightly less tall and a little smaller than a classic sideboard, Silhouette can be used as a desk and has been designed to offer storage under the top.
