It’s been called armor. It’s been called avant garde. It’s been called old-school, and it’s been called…. 8-bit?
Sabine Ducasse is a Shanghai-immersed, French artist who has taken a page from the childhoods of many, and utilized Perler beads (the plastic tube beads that fuse when ironed) in creating what has been the target of many names and adjectives… we just think it’s really, really cool.
Ducasse’s collection is appropriately called “Melting Pot” and is truly… elegant. (Who would have thought I’d ever say that about the toys I used to make geometrically-shaped Christmas ornaments with?)
