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. 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. “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 withan 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 refined piece. A Bump prototype was first presented in Milan 2016 by 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.
