Gilda Table by Eric Jourdan

Part of Super-ette's 2013 Collection shown at Maison & Objet in Paris, Gilda is "a simple and basic table, with a very assertive character. A tricky exercise, since basics have no room for a glut of features." says Jourdan.


Jourdan continues, "After having constructed the table around a 'modern' base, I sought to tackle the table top, to be more precise its border, in a virtually traditional way with an outline which readily reflects the world of traditional cabinet making. A recurring blend in my work."


Prestige Mirror by Fanny Dora

Also in the collection presented at Maison et Objet, Fanny Dora's anamorphic mirror. "In the world of magic Prestige is the conclusion of a trick, the moment when the audience is captured." says Dora.


"Like an illusionist, your perception will be deceived by this mirror using an anamorphic 'trick': from the front, it is a traditional round mirror, but from a different perspective a second function is revealed, a layer of wood, a place for your small belongings."


Monad Shelf Fran├žois Bauchet

Fran├žois Bauchet's clever shelving system uses bent metal cut out from its metal sides to hold the shelves. Monad "is a solid shelf made from solid materials, wood and metal, a far cry from cheap products." says Bauchet.


"At least the research is formal here then: less features characterized by avoiding the superfluous with high a quality finish. A device for storage."


Homework table by Tomas Kral

Tomas Kral's Homework is an an aluminum and ash work table with a moat. "Homework is a work table which has been set to be even more functional: an aluminium cloth is placed on a wooden table then folded to form a refined extension,...


"... a toolbox to store documents, objects, photos...that you need or simply desire to work." says Kral.


"The tilted surface enables you to lay down open books and continue reading like with a desk."


Bronco Stool Guillaume Delvigne

And finally, '"Saddle or stool?" with Guillaume Delvigne's Bronco stool. "I like the idea that at first there is speculation about which way to sit: in classic mode or astride?" says Delvigne.


"With these two eye-catching screws, the moulded piece of wood that interfaces the seat and one of the feet can also be a handle, lower back support, hook... Through the fluidity of its form and its T-shaped structure, I tried to give it a robust, accessible and likeable identity."
