Collection by Pierre Favresse at Nouvelle Vague

French designer Pierre Favresse presented his collection of furniture with looping sections and bent ply at the Nouvelle Vague exhibition of new French design in Milan last week.

Called Perch, the series comprises a dining chair, rocking chair, coat rack, desk with a light in the hood and a reading chair with a shield on one side.

The Perch Collection consists of several pieces based on the same construction: a reading chair, coat rack, rocking chair, chair and desk with integrated light. With this collection the designer wanted to show a large family of functionalities working off the same principle.

Color scheme harmony is also an important part of the project with each color “coded” for a different function, or specific place. Everything is made in birch wood with a basic cnc machine.

Pierre Favresse started his career with designer Mathieu Lehanneur and became studio director, before founding his own studio in 2010. Pierre’s creations are characterized by their simplicity and balance and marry craftsmanship with state of the art technology.  Through design, Pierre plays with many of today’s everyday questions around the use of new materials and innovative functionality, while maintaining a strong focus on social and environmental concerns, be that through reduced manufacturing costs or eco friendly methods and materials. Today, Pierre is strengthening and developing relationships with several companies such as Cinna, Petite Friture, Specimen Edition, Triode and the Coming Soon Gallery.
