Julien Carretero, craftsman designer
French designer Julien Carretero did a Master’s degree at the Eindhoven Design Academy under tutor Gijs Bakker of Droog Design. He then worked two years with Maarten Baas before setting up his own studio in Eindhoven.Julien explores the possibilities of artisan creation in objects that are lively, vibrant and in constant phase-change.
Drag uses a traditional technique for making ornamental cornice mouldings using synthetic plaster. Half-pieces are rotated on a central axis as the plaster sets, then assembled to form a complete round turn. Several different typologies of objects (lamps, utility table, stool) have been made and each piece is unique. A minimal industrial process that integrates organic imperfection.
