SELECTED PROJECTS

Shift

FUNCTION:

Chest of drawers

LOCATION:

Geneva

YEAR:

2015

Aerial View of Forest

ABOUT

Shift is a chest of drawers based on the shape of a rhombohedron. The dynamic geometric shape of the creation is complemented by the seemingly random design of its marketry bands, which give the impression of holding together the construction and hindering it from falling apart. Shift is an object beyond pure function with high quality craftsmanship.

Commodia

FUNCTION:

Chest of drawers

LOCATION:

Geneva

YEAR:

2013

Aerial View of Forest

ABOUT

Commodia is a chest of drawers with organic surfaces and shapes. Its high-end appearance is emphasized by the use of strongly figured wood species and by outstanding workmanship. Its shape is underlined by the contrast between the wood colour of surfaces and the wood colour of edges. In addition, materials and finishes of hidden surfaces are given the same special attention to quality than those of visible surfaces resulting in aesthetic concept without discontinuity.

Labyrinth

FUNCTION:

Chest of drawers

LOCATION:

Geneva

YEAR:

2015

Aerial View of Forest

ABOUT

The primary idea in terms of shape was to create a tower shaped vertical chest of drawers whose drawers have a horizontal and vertical dimension. The intricate veneer pattern made from African Ebony and Maple is meant to replicate the labyrinth of streets found in modern cities.
