Xavier Lust

Xavier Lust describes his approach as an emotional equation with 4 parameters: Functionality, Beauty, Technology, Culture. Gradually, as the opportunities grew, Xavier Lust applied his language, his writing to all technologies, materials and scales. His work is clearly identifiable through the visible tension he gives to his objects, and the curves inspired by his innovative (de)formation process of metallic surfaces. In 2000 Xavier Lust started to design for MDF Italia, an ongoing relationship which was the start of his collaboration with leading international producers such as Driade, De Padova, Cerruti Baleri, Fiam, Extremis… Since 2007, his limited editions are presented by the best actors and galleries specialized in Art-design. All his creations, ‘alive objects’, are a friendly presence that radiates in the space of life. He has received of dozens of awards including Compasso d’Oro. His work has appeared in over 50 exhibitions and is a regular feature in international design publications. He is a regularly invited guest lecturer at leading art and design institutions around the world.

“A wonderful aspect of Xavier’s work is the illusion of lightness and motion. In his designs he manages to express what seems impossible. It’s seems as though his works are not created; they are born.”
