French ar­ti­sanal met­al­worker and man­u­fac­turer Poue­nat’s lat­est fur­ni­ture col­lec­tion in­fuses in­te­rior ar­chi­tect ar­chi­tec­tural cre­ativ­ity, giv­ing rise to a dis­tinct sculp­tural style

We have a long­time col­lab­o­ra­tion with Poue­nat. Their cre­ations are reg­u­larly in­te­grated in our projects, pri­vate res­i­dences or ho­tels, such as Che­val Blanc in Courchevel, or the Royal At­lantis and its 250 lux­ury res­i­dences in Dubai. We ap­pre­ci­ate their know-how and abil­ity to adapt a prod­uct to our spe­cific needs. Thus when we de­cided to de­velop our own fur­ni­ture and light­ing col­lec­tion it was ob­vi­ous that we should rely on their ex­per­tise. The cre­ation of fur­ni­ture and light­ing col­lec­tions, com­bin­ing moder­nity and tra­di­tion, lux­ury and el­e­gance, is part of the creative di­rec­tion of our stu­dio and its in­ter­na­tional projects. My taste for no­ble ma­te­ri­als, mixed with my sense of de­tail in­spired me. The col­lec­tion hinges on five themes mix­ing emo­tion, imag­i­na­tion and sen­su­al­ity, tak­ing in con­sid­er­a­tion of both func­tional as­pects as well as mar­ket needs. Any cre­ation – whether in­te­rior or prod­uct de­sign – re­quires ad­just­ments. The re­search and devel­op­ment phases are part of the process, and make the de­sign­ing chal­lenge even more ex­cit­ing. Thanks to a close col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween our de­sign stu­dio and their tech­ni­cal depart­ment, we are al­ways confident in Poue­nat’s abil­ity to find a man­u­fac­tur­ing so­lu­tion even in de­vel­op­ing new fin­ishes to reach our com­mon ob­jec­tive. Ef­fi­cient com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the work­shop is as im­por­tant as our re­la­tion­ship with our clients when de­vel­op­ing an in­te­rior de­sign project. Faith in the ex­per­tise is the key. My favourite piece is the Fu­sion con­sole and din­ing ta­ble. A din­ing

How did your col­lab­o­ra­tion with Poue­nat come to pass? Could you tell us more about the new fur­ni­ture col­lec­tion – the in­spi­ra­tion and ob­jec­tive be­hind it?

Fu­sion con­sole

When cre­at­ing the pieces, did you face any chal­lenges in the process of trans­lat­ing your idea into re­al­ity?
