ÉTOILE DE MER
Lacquered bar cabinet
A masterpiece of design and workmanship, Pulp has the stylized form of an octopus with tentacles extending from its body. The three doors lend character to the work and require skilful craftsmanship in their production. Each is created from a single piece of wood made up of ingeniously glued sheets of birch, which leave an elegant structural mark on the interior. The three doors slide into a lateral and vertical position by means of an automated movement that emphasizes the spectacular nature of the work. On the interior, the cherry wood shelves have a natural fi nish, as does the interior of the body of the piece, which is created through the patient craftsmanship of skilful wood sculptors. The application of the exterior fi nish is particularly diffi cult due to the numerous curves and the extreme complexity of the surface. The interior is illuminated by individual LED lights whose colour can be changed by remote control to create the desired atmosphere in the room. This is one of the most sophisticated and complex of the Sculptures Utilitaires, requiring more than four months for production and delivery. The colours and interior functions can be customized but must be compatible with its unique form.
