Franck Mouly's selection
Franck created Melville in the autumn of 2016, a new hot spot featuring a curated selection of light appliances and furniture for all design lovers, particulars or professionals.
Simple and very original at the same time, FRISCO is as functional as a traditional shelving but with an outstanding design: the different heights ans widths of its cases enables to store any formats of books, different type of artefacs. The colors of the backs can be customized. 100% solid oak from sustainable forests. Backs oak veneered 6/10 in solid wood style. Made in Anjou (France).
Rise & Shine
The Rise & Shine Wall Mirror utilises bold forms with an asymmetrical composition to create an unfolding feature within any space. A softening oak centre point allows the mirror and brass components to push and pull against each other, providing an ever-changing point of reflection. Whether employed for different functions, or simply to create an intriguing interior sculpture, Rise and Shine provides a centrepiece full of balance and movement.
THE TIRED MAN
Flemming Lassen designed the overstuffed easy chair, The Tired Man, for The Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Competition in 1935. It is characterised by organic, bearlike shapes and then as now it created a sensation with its curved form and voluminous armrests. Sitting in the chair should, in Flemming Lassen’s own ords, be ”as warm and safe as a polar bear cub in the arms of its mother in the middle of the ice cap”. The family man Flemming Lassen valued intimate relationships - with its warm exterior, The Tired Man invokes domestic cosiness and socialising by candlelight.
Handmade of PEFC -certified form-pressed birch in Finland by highly skilled craftsmen. The wood provides a soft luminosity for atmosphere and appeal.
