Welcome Two Wings !
Laurent Beyne, founder of the Deux Ailes company, specializes, since 1985 in combining glass and light, matter and gesture, mathematics and poetics.
He is located at the intersection of different unique expertise : both glass worker, a "luminarist", a lighting designer, a sculptor, He considers daily life the sum of the duties of an artist, a craftsman and a worker.
Creativity, inventiveness, freshness, enchantent ability, an almost alchemic control of the materials are the constituent pillars of Laurent Beyne’s identity and Deux Ailes studio.
Besides the singularity of poetic writing and his original style, he develops specific expertise and world-exclusive : glass cutting processes, fragmenting glass on silicone film, and flexible mosaics, etc.
Its motto : "My hands are my wings". The human hand is, from the beginning, tool, to really make a Alternative offers industrial supply.
Laurent Beyne chooses the materials for their exceptional qualities and their durability, their symbolic and enduring characters (natural glass or crystallized, marble, concrete, basalt, granite, silver, gold leaf, semi-precious stones, stainless steel, brass).
He transforms them as a real sculptor would and avoids easy solutions such as subcontracting and using imported products.
Our collections are up to date mainly illuminating objects, constructed from glass and stainless steel.
Many of our cutting techniques, finishing or assembly are clean workshop, in other words, oriented, developed and practiced as a particular culture in productions.
After a complex chain of particular gestures is a particular object.
Thus creation and production are closely linked in the case Two Wings.
The workshop is a reflection of this duality, a kind of laboratory where the artist meets the craftsman, the designer encounters the performer, where every gesture is careful and laborious research attempting to free the material constraints, so that the final piece is the result of a long and laborious maturation.
Between high fashion, jewelry and crystal, production takes place entirely in the current workshop Montreuil (400m2 Porte de Montreuil) or, meticulously, fit together and are ordered machines and hundreds of thousands of works in progress, semi-finished parts and raw shards cut one by one.
