Just as before, chess pieces have continued to be the inspiration for the new designs.
Ionna has also incorporated another colour to add to the mustard, olive, peach and sky blue colours already in production: shadow grey. She uses a contrast of high gloss for the lacquers with a matte, wax finish for the natural wood.
Unlike the coffee tables, the lacquer on the dining tables runs across the entire base, right the way up to the edge of the table top.
The seat of the stool is in natural leather, chosen to match the colour of the base.
The upholstery cannot be removed.
After graduating from the Nantes design school, Ionna worked with prestigious companies like shoemaker Camper and the acclaimed design studio Ronon & Erwan Bouroullec. She received the Grand Prize for a piece commissioned by the city of Paris in 2011 and went on to found her own studio - working with some of the sector’s most important companies, such as Industreal, The Tools Galerie, Wallpaper, Foscarini, Moustache and Super-ette - Sancal being the latest member of her collection. In only a few years, Ionna has become a rising star in French design. The company fell in love with her interesting ideas for Foscarini, although the Pion tables are now the new favourites.
