Wax Atelier re-visits traditional techniques ranging from candle dipping, paper making, to crafted textiles using natural wax. Making becomes a tool to experience the interconnection between the natural world and material culture.
WAX Atelier was founded in 2017 by multidisciplinary designers Lola Lely and Yesenia Thibault-Picazo, in London.
Born in Hanoi, Lola grew up in London and was curious from an early age about how objects are made. Drawing, making and the connection between materials, process and maker are all central to her practice.
Yesenia is a French-born musician alongside her design work, and explores the narrative potential of materials through collaborations with experts in the fields of geology, anthropology and craft. She defines herself as a ‘material teller’ and uses design as a means to engage with diverse audiences on contemporary ecological challenges.
