For my 10th anniversary I created a brand new collection in 2021. The Fusion collection is a unique blend of my two signature collections: Ruban and Genesis.
The Fusion collection takes key elements from the Ruban collection: soft lines, elongated curves, streamlined design…
From the Genesis collection, the Fusion collection takes the kinetic accumulation of ribbons, powerful aesthetics and the contrast between materials…
Each piece from the Fusion collection is composed of several strips of laminate American walnut wood which diverge, meet and ultimately merge together. The molding is done once; all the slats are molded at the same time so that the entire movement of the curves is fluid and consistent.
I wanted to reimagine some of the signature pieces from the Ribbon Collection like the Wave Side Table. Similar to the Wave Side Table, the Fusion Side Table is lithe in appearance, a ribbon of wood outlining a wave frozen in movement. The slats on the top diverge just before the curve, creating a kinetic effect as they move away from each other before merging back into the top…then once again spreading out in a new twist.
The Fusion Side Table was first unveiled during the collection’s launch by the maison parisienne gallery during Paris Design Week 2021.
