Concept

“The archetype of armchairs and sofas, cube-shaped, basic, elementary: this is the very starting point of design; well done, that’s it. It is that kind of piece of furniture I just need; I have no room for furniture caricatures transforming and transfiguring the features of a place.
I detest fashion furniture created like a style, overloaded, suggesting all sorts of references. I need plain objects, that’s why I create them.
Anti-design, without fancy, black and square, ergonomically working. It’s just normal.”
Jean Nouvel
