THE RICHNESS OF MATERIALS
Bump is a collection of cabinets in galvanized steel and marble. The name comes from the ‘Bump’ on each door where you push to open the doors.
“Marble is an incredibly rich material and every time you extract a block from the mountain you have the surprise to discover an incredible design. Even each slice is different. We wanted to replicate this unpredictability and richness with an industrial material and process. Galvanization produces this kind of rich shades and elaborate design”. The shape remains simple and Bump is all about the materials. The structure and interior of Bump is entirely made of wood and metal is only applied as a décor to this conceptual but nonetheless re ned piece.
A Bump prototype was presented at Spazio Roanna Orlandi in Milan 2016 by Czech Designers Jan Plechac & Henry Wielgus. This piece was the base concept for a 2 years work between La Chance and the designers to develop the Bump collection of credenza and cabinets.
Jan Plecháč and Henry Wielgus met during their studies at AAAD (The Academy of Art, Architecture and Design in Prague) where there first collaborations began. In 2012, they founded studio Jan Plecháč & Henry Wielgus together, whose work transcends
the barriers between art, architecture and design. Currently, studio Jan Plecháč & Henry Wielgus is commissioned for international re-known galleries and brands such as Rossana Orlandi Gallery, Mint shop, Luminaire, Lasvit, Cappellini or Menu.

Jan and Henry, what was the original inspiration for the Bump credenza ?
Galvanization is a process traditionally associated with heavy industry and used to protect metals against corrosive substances. Steel is submerged in a bath of protective molten yellow zinc which creates this unique iridescent colour and shades.
