Matisse – Hive
Ottoman and tables are combined to create an original and poetic furnishing complement. The 3d surface of the former results from the assembly of small leather “leaves,” discarded from the manufacturing process. The latter issue from a folded sheet of metal.

Conquibine – Muse Design Bronze and Gold Leaf Vase
Pepper Vase in dark bronze is a Lost Wax cast vessel designed and sculpted by the master artisans at the Muse Design atelier in Thailand.

Once the form has be cast and cooled, the clay mold is then cracked open to reveal the bronze cast form.
