When you are expecting nothing, pum! You find something that surprises you. And when something surprises you, you have to tell it, because if you do not, the flow does not flow and that is not good for a good sleep. Is it? ;O)
Alexis Facca is a magical set and paper french designer based in Brussels, Belgium. We found him in the last edition of Interfilière Paris. Vanessa Causse, trend forecaster, has considered him worthy to appear in a section called Delicates tendencies and Inspirations. We thank her. His work is wonderful!
I spend most of my time trying to mix materials that are not usually made for each other, with the intention of building new materials, and encouraging them through Le Silo.
He proposes a new way of creation to reinvent the windows of the stores and rethink the communication with more humanity and poetry. The paper, its material of predilection, infuses a delicacy and elegance that we could reincarnate in the merchandising. His art also suggests possible creativity for packaging to invent a brand event like a pop-up store.
This artist, promoted by Valérie Oualid agency, carries two trades with passion: the art of paper and set designer, and the director and producer of films in stop motion, under the name of his production company Le Silo.
Mainly driven by a passion for colors, textures and materials, I create playful still and moving images made of bold color pallets, smart tricks and an handmade tangibility. For video direction, I team up with the photographer Tom Joye under the name of Le Silo
In the 3D world, he offers short films with geometric peps colors. Playful and fun, he has worked for customers such as Accor Hotel, Beo Bank, BHV, Converse, Michelin, Orange, Renault, Skoda, Universal Music…
His work has been already published on AVE Magazine, Design 360, Design Milk, Editions Zulma Publishing Beliforniat, Fricote Magazine, Fubiz, Gnam Box Magazine, Kyoorius Magazine, Paper Cut Book, Paper Works, Usbek & Rica, WRAP Magazine.
Isn’t it a pleasure for the eyes and the ears? Just have a look and enjoy his inspiration.
