Paris – British designer Julian Mayor plays with the paradoxical qualities of nature and computer graphics for his solo exhibition, Organic Geometry, at the Galerie Armel Soyer in Paris.

Organic Geometry combines the scientific aspects of design with the art of hand-made craft. Mayor develops and scales his models on a computer and then folds and welds the pieces in an organic way. ‘I always try to keep the themes of ‘visually dynamic’ and ‘the computer’ on one hand, and lightness and craft on the other,’ Mayor tells DesignBoom.

His most recent work, the Lunar low table and the Parallax table and chairs, combine masculine and feminine aesthetics. The sharp vector-like angles of the structures contrast with the fluidity of the reflective metallic surfaces. The industrial materials – stainless steel and carbon fibre – have parallel qualities.

The furniture references the visual language that LS:N Global first identified in our Industrial Futurism macrotrend, in which linear architectural forms are mixed with gold and metallic details.
