As architects and craftspeople, we believe there are no boundaries of scale, use or form between a building and a piece of furniture.
In our practice, where manufacturing is no longer separated from designing, a constructive detail can become the starting point for a more global project. We consider furniture pieces as architectural elements; furniture is made, structured, assembled, just as a building would be designed.

This collection is the fruit of research into wood joining through weaving. The furniture is made of small pieces of wood held together by a paper rope.

The chest of drawers and the dresser respond to each other in form and colour, both borrowing various construction principles from architecture: the hood mould as a handle, the clapboard for the drawers, the charred wood (the Japanese technique of Shou Sugi Ban used for façades and roofs) for the finish.

Through the use of natural materials and traditional techniques, the collection is part of a timeless design.
