le_roi_alessandro_dubini_3.jpg Alessandro Dubini's Le Roi is an homage to the commode, "the sovereign piece of furniture starting from the 18th century, with its lightness and winding shapes, brought to a modern material and shape." Le Roi uses a technique popular in that time as well, Trompe-l'œil...

Le Roi is made of a wooden internal structure which is then covered with aluminum plates decorated using sublimation printing, which allows the transfer of the decoration from a paper sheet to the aluminum plate in an indelible way.
