Furthermore, Xavier Lust very quickly made his appearance in the closed circles of the international edition. Since ‘Le Banc’ was published by MDF Italia, he has worked with this publisher, but also with world-renowned brands such as De Padova, Driade, Moroso and Extremis. In 2003, Lust received the Henry van de Velde Award for Young Talent from VIZO. His furniture is recognisable by its taut line. He moulds metal surfaces, which opens up new perspectives for urban furniture, table art, bathrooms, lighting, the upholstery of electrical products, etc. His talent lies in the way he combines creativity on paper and simulation in 3D with a subtle approach in practice.
It is difficult to compete with the beauty of trees, with their tall grandeur and high tops. And yet, the ambition of the Parckdesign project call lies in the challenge to use urban furniture to emphasise the age-old bond between man and nature, between his artificial interventions and his relationship with plants and flora. Placed in a contemporary context, park furniture expresses the desire to experiment, to test, and to value and discover green spaces in a quest for a more specific identity.
