More than a picture, the sea is a life frame. A privileged universe that turns on the mind, shapes the dreams, draws adventure and fascination.
That project was designed to arrange a room devoted to creation in a seaside Mediterranean villa. Evoking by its structure a boat that is soaked in the water, that workspace is meant to take its passenger in the depths of creativity, guided by the uniqueness of that environment.
Evolving in two distinct parts, this place offers an open space that faces the outside of the room, with a bookshelf, items, and documentation. Rather intimate, the second space contains a desk, designed to focus and create.
This fixture relies on a micro-architecture process that provides the organisation of both the bookshelf in the open part of the room, and the desk in the inner part. The construction is based on simple wooden cleats and soft plywood, in order to recall the serene and quiet movement of a boat laying on the seafloor.
The desk is opening from the bookshelf’s structure and the flexion of two wooden slices, giving rise to a large workspace, held by pumice stone on the end.
Terracotta floors are lacquered in a deep blue finish, fading out on each section of wall. Always referring to the sea, this middle ground between time and innovation still preserves the spirit of an old mansion house.
Vegetable leather construction module and linen veil. assembly system neodymium magnet. This research is based on building a game space by manipulating and accumulating these modules to compose a micro architecture in space.
The project is inspired by the idea of flows materialized by light. A solid element gets dispersed and shaped into an outgrowth of fibers dissipating through space. The sole use of casted PMMA brings forward the reflective and thermoformable properties of this material. Nine strands of PMMA and a tube are assembled in three pieces of junction, thus forming a luminary arborescence. LED lighting technology is used throughout the polished gradient of each strand, focalising the light on unpolished zones and becoming more scattered up until complete transparence.
The drawing of this armchair acknowledges this evolution by incorporating this increased demand for connectivity in its design while ensuring adapted seating for its users.
The research leading to this development identified four body positions linked to the use of digital technologies. The objective of the design was to provide a support for users to maintain a high level of comfort throughout various postures. The structure is based on an assembly of built-in plywood. The seating area is designed with a cushion of light 3D textile. One of the armchair feet is slightly bent, allowing a light backward tilt and thus providing a wider range of movement dynamics.
This desk was created in response to a growing need from individuals working from home for multifunctional and adaptable furniture.
The desk is entirely made of veneer plywood for the exception of the table legs, which are made of solid wood. It is equipped with several drawers that are hidden behind one fixed and one foldable panel. The top panel, divided in three equal parts, can be opened thanks to two leather hinges, revealing the fixed panel and the drawers. The angle of the top panel is slightly curved to allow for easy manipulation. A discrete notch blocks the foldable panel, turning it into a document holder, while clearing space to write or work.
