The French Touch
The French Touch is a conceptual object inspired by French house music during the 1990’s, paying homage to experimental artists like Daft Punk, Cassius and Etienne de Crecy. Designed and manufactured in Los Angeles, the French Touch is composed of dichroic film applied to CNC-cut acrylic and is connected by steel bolts. Naturally interactive with light, the dichroic application is combined with puzzle-like lap joints as part of a conceptual demonstration of the way tracks during the period were produced by combining disco samples with filters to create it's distinctive sound. Its construction allows a luminous color spectrum to reveal itself at every angle.
The French Touch debuted at Wanted Design Launch Pad 2016 during NYC x Design Week and won a nomination for Joogii as a Emerging Talent by Interior Design Magazine and ICFF.
The French Touch is accompanied by a mixtape selected and mixed in studio by Juliette and Diogo that embody the zeitgeist of 1990's French house music.
