Candy Guitar Takes Cues from a Caramel Apple
The Candy guitar is like a wooden apple that has been dipped into a resin bath
Candy is a new guitar designed by the young French designer Joran Briand, who trained at Olivier de Serres and the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs de Paris. He describes the project as “a story of friendship, design and music”. He was asked by Ateliers SeeWhy to draw a guitar to kick off their latest project “A designer, a guitar,” which aims to associate design and lute-making.
Briand suggested to them that he’d like to draw one for a band that he loves. So he set out to design a guitar for the French psyche-punk rock band La Femme, whose music he was really enjoying at the time.
