Gold-Toned Polished Brass Console Phi by Hervé Langlais 2017 France

About the Item

Phi, design by Hervé Langlais for Galerie Negropontes Both a console and a mirror, the Phi console borrows its name from the Golden Number. Legend has it that architect Phidias was its first user when he built the Parthenon on the Acropolis in Athens. Aesthetic and mystical, the Golden Number has over the centuries become a token of beauty and harmony. It is in reference to this "Divine Proportion" that Hervé Langlais has designed a polished brass rectangle simply folded along its diagonal. This is a work of high precision and virtuosity in perfect harmony with the finesse of the drawing. A precious object in suspension, the Phi console appears to take off. Hervé Langlais is a graduate of the Normandy School of Architecture in Rouen. He collaborated with Paul Andreu for over fifteen years, working on the National Grand Theater of China in Beijing and the Oriental Art Center in Shanghai. In parallel to his work with Andreu, Langlais’ personal projects led him to design interiors for private homes. While designing for a number of studios, Langlais founded his own design studio in 2006, loyal to his guiding principles of combining precision and purity of design with high quality materials. Since 2012, he has been working in close collaboration with Sophie Negropontes, designing a yearly collection of luminaires and furniture. Langlais has also created Galerie Negropontes’ unique stands for trade fairs in France and abroad. Hervé Langlais’ creations are in keeping with the French Decorative Arts, renewing a tradition of excellence in which luxury and modernity come together. *Measurements may vary slightly.
