Aurelie Hoegy

Aurelie Hoegy’s work continues to stir excitement, blurring the physical and psychological boundaries in everyday life. Her functional designs span lim- ited edition objects, furniture and lighting, and encompass installation, scenography and film. Among her ongoing projects is the investigation of natural dyes and indigenous fibres in Mexico, including bejuco liana, palm leaves, coconut yarn and pineapple silks. By listening closely to such expressive materials, the designer is able to bring them to life in a powerful animistic way: breathing, purring and moving, taking their pulse while making our heart beat just a little faster in the process.
