When Michaël Cheneau from the Mica gallery offered me to design wooden pieces gilded, I immediately jump at the opportunity to work with creative craftsmen. Their know-how, unknown to me, would serve new shapes.

I dove into this proposal, considering it as a stylistic composition. My single purpose was to design shapes very different from each other, independent but using the same visible language. Over an intuitive process came out three pieces: a small repository, a tray and a centrepiece. Due to their hand-wide and their material (wood and gold leaf) they are precious and touch-sensitive objects. Their delicate gilding leads to a bright presence, underlining and enhancing some parts of the shape.
