we wanted to work with this ancient fabrication process and give it a new visual language, explain ronan and erwan bouroullec. the result is a system of legs with a newly made geometric shape to hold up tabletops of different size and nature steel, wood, glass.
As structural elements, they can create furniture of extreme sophistication, refinement and harmony, they add. the surface of wrought iron is alive and imperfect, which lends the objects a special vibration. by reflecting the random, mechanical traces of the tools that gave them shape, these pieces bring a breath of fresh air to the industrial scheme.
