Franck Mouly wanted this snapshot modeled on the urban decor of the walls, thought in consultation with the Parisian interior designer, Vasken Yéghiayan (the last inspiration forums of the 2015-2016 editions of Salon Maison & Objet, it's him): cladding of clean wood, modern LEDs, hot-cold harmony, for a successful telescoping uses and forms.
Portrait of Franck Mouly
Passionate about design, attentive to reeditions, inveterate bargain hunter, the host, ex-pro of finance, left the capital to find the South, with the desire to derogate from the southern landscape ... Adventurer in the soul, so he made trips, provoked meetings, brought back nuggets and exceptional know-how. A total freedom of style that sums up this elegant atmosphere for the home and the office, punctuated with worlds fusing in beautiful intelligence. Here are the minimalist icons, masterpieces of great designers of the 1940-50-60 (Wegner, Jacobsen, Grossman, Best, Henningsen), but also more confidential factories giving pride to noble and natural materials.
The young creation, freed from functional spirit, offers modular, retractable pieces of small furniture that facilitate the movement of "new generation" fireplaces. Here, the raw design also expresses the function without adornment, in an awareness of sustainable development, while the indoor-outdoor prepares us a spring inspired by life in the sun, through Basque, Portuguese and Iberian productions. A nice game of bridges and surprises constantly reinvented, certainly conducive soon to collaborations, sensitive partnerships to create small collections-capsules that go for sure, illuminate our interiors with a bold audacity.
