Description

Founded in Roubaix, in the Hauts de France region (France), the Æquo studio has a regional approach to design, drawing inspiration from its surrounding environment. Æquo tells the story of its region, its history, its culture, its expertises, its materials, its industries, its designers, and so on... "Fabrique" is a collection, composed of two pieces forming a small factory that can be used as a candlestick and/or as a bookend. This sculptural object is auto-produced using two traditional, terracotta bricks, which are hand-moulded and sculpted. This creation is produced in the Æquo studio in Douai: local, conscientious and reasoned production. Each brick is unique, and designers use them as they are, with their flaws, their lumps and bumps, their manufacturing marks: with their history."Fabrique" celebrates the exceptional industrial heritage of the city of Roubaix, "the City of a Thousand Chimneys". Brick is a material which has particularly shaped the Northern landscapes. Enamoured with the material and the land, Æquo's designers decided to showcase it: brick steps out of its reputation as a construction material to become a creative object.Just like Roubaix, "Fabrique" showcases the culture and will continue to shine for centuries to come. In true artwork fashion, Fabrique is protected in a wooden case. Brick therefore takes on a prestigious dimension, and is welcomed into the interior of homes.A small town with 6000 inhabitants, a century ago, made up of sparse hamlets where the monotone voice of the hand-weaving trade, a small town adopting progress from its revelation, its vulgarisation, and unshakably following its path onwards and against all, despite the betrayals of nature, without water, without canals, and now a huge city with 200,000 inhabitants, with its immediate suburbs, Roubaix is more than confident in its strength." Eugène Motte, Mayor of Roubaix (Extract from "Nord Illustré", 1st April, 1911)
