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."

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.

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

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."
