The French artist Hervé Humbert reproduces preexisting “classics” from design, architecture and art history.‎ In his process of building a replica, he engages in a dialogue with the object, traces and manually repeats what is visible in the model.‎ He interprets the precursor by his selection of materials and sizes, by transposing details and contexts, making everything, wherever possible, by hand.‎ The replica is only identical to its precursor at first glance.‎ It becomes an industrially unrepeatable unique through subjective perception and Humbert’s
specific handwriting.‎
“Petite table d’angle” is an unusual table object in which Humbert blurs the boundaries between art and design.‎
The series developed for Atelier Haußmann is comprised of 31 unique objects each consisting of a remnant marble slab with a breakpoint, surrounded by a steel angle frame which has been individually composed to match the random shape of the slabs, yet remaining open at the breakpoint.‎ Unexpected perspectives occur as a result of this tabletop which juts out like a cliff hanging over the frame and the arrangement of the table legs is reminiscent of architectural structures.‎
