Lise El Sayed Furniture design - Environmental design

Her work is strongly driven by her love of reclaiming and hijacking objects (generally utilitarian objects)  from their habitual uses, but also by an interest for textiles and traditional as well as industrial techniques. She delves into the history of objects to bring out one or several of their qualities that she deems intriguing. She modifies the construction, appearance, or function of an object, creating hybrids: a mat turns into a pair of shoes, a small spoon becomes a mirror. Manipulating the genes of the objects to give birth to a new species that refuses to be related to a unique use.
