Biography and career

Beatrix Li-Chin Loos



"During my travels, I have always been moved and fascinated by these mountains that make us believe that every hill is actually a sleeping animal ... It's a reassuring and soothing feeling that links us to the nature and the Earth, but when night falls or in bad weather can be more threatening, because these animals 'asleep' could wake up ... "


With "Sleeping Mountains", a series of sculptural formations (table, stool, saddle), Beatrix Li-Chin Loos pushes the border between design and art. The functionality becomes secondary, even accessory. It is the form that takes over. She creates a landscape, like a sculpture and full of poetry.


Matter is at the very heart of his work. Composed of different superimposed layers, like geological strata, this first formation "Volcanic Landscape" plays with contrasts and materials. Elm, medium, chipboard and leather coexist. Beatrix Li-Chin Loos creates surfaces that intrigue and mislead: the lacquered agglomerate becomes volcanic rock, the lacquered medium takes on the appearance of ceramic or earth crust.


Shaped exclusively from falls, each hill is born from the work of the hand.
