Our Services

Creations

Custom made is not only a matter of dimensions of a piece of furniture. In that way, and in order to meet individuals or collectors expectations, we integrate a design office. This allows us to change words into images and render most ambitious interior decoration projects.

Editions

Theses solid timber elements are used as basic components for various types of furniture. Acrylic resin is used to get functional surfaces.All objects are built in limited series of 20 pieces maximum.
This whole collection was created with both designers Camille Angibaud and Jörg Guessner.

Prototyping

Our specialty is wood and wood based products working of any kind. Bending, moulding, veneer, marquetry, lacsquer...
All these techniques allow us to closely fit to designers expectations.
As a small company, we are able to answer very rapidly to any need. Short lead times are our everydays work...
