Kiko Lopez is an exceptional glass artist, who embodies an artist’s sensibilities with the long-learned talents of a craftsman. Educated as an architect and industrial designer he has been combining techniques from diverse disciplines to innovate in his glass work for over 30 years.
The design should be generous…
In the quality of materials and the timeless purity of form. No matter what it is research and rigor, multiple tests ans errors, it is our humanity that reveals, in the end, the presence of the object.
For the last ten years he has been creating his unique mirrors or “shadow drawings.” Using the many techniques he has gathered from elder craftsmen, old texts, and his own explorations and developments, these are one-of-a kind objects. Kiko’s combination of rigorous craftsmanship with gorgeous artistic talent appeals to architects, interior designers, galleries and collectors around the globe.
Since 1990, Kiko has lived with his wife Ebba in Bonnieux, Provence, in the South of France. Together, they form an architectural office specializing in the restoration of old country houses. Shortly thereafter, Kiko set up his own design studio in Les Beaumettes, and devotes himself to among other things, to pâte de verre. For fifteen years, he made important comissions in furniture, objects, lighting and architectural elements such as glass walls, screens, doors or chandeliers. He worked for the Cristallerie Saint-Louis, The Musée de l’Homme in Paris, Les Quatre temps, La Défence, as well as private clients in Europe and America. He is now specialized in the design, manufacture and installation of one of a kind mirrors (called Shadow Drawings), crystal and light installations. With, always, a clear sense of luxury and timelessness.
