Utilizing sound and form in his work Vase#44, François Brument will harness vocal reverberations produced by the spoken word to create images. Exploring the principle of an infinite edition of unique pieces, Brument develops these patterns into vases employing digital 3D modeling techniques. Visitors to the Lab will have the opportunity to create personalized, one-of-a-kind designs.

With a primary interest in the creation of objects existing in the interstice between numbered editions and industrial production, the work of free-lance French designer François Brument focuses on digital design and its application to form in perpetual change. A graduate of the École Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle in Paris, Brument has exhibited his work in France and abroad since 2005 including participating in the landmark show Design and the Elastic Mind at the Museum of Modern Art (2008) and exhibitions at both the Centre Georges Pompidou and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris (2009). He is represented in the permanent collections of France’s Fonds National d’Art Contemporain and the Centre Canadien d’Architecture in Montreal, among others. Through the efforts of Nasir and Nargis Kassamali and with the generous support of 3D Systems, proceeds from the sale of works from this installation of Vase#44 will directly benefit cancer research and support in Miami, Florida.

Be sure to stop by the Luminaire Lab for the development of your personalized vase November 30 through December 11. Meet François Brument during the transFORM event on Thursday, December 2. Proceeds from the purchase of your vase will go toward finding a cure for cancer.
