Whether you're Mr Angry or Ms Emollient, the new Jekyll and Hyde collection will have a piece to suit your mood
Founded in 2011 by architect Louise Breguet and financier Jean-Baptiste Souletie, the company has not only hoovered up the best talent from France’s effervescent new wave of designers, such as Noé Duchaufour Lawrance, but also up-and-coming producers from around Europe, including Swedish collective Note Design Studio.
Note’s mission in life is – unsurprisingly – to ‘be noticed’ and we certainly can’t ignore its Bolt Stool. Available in this natural beech, or a stained matt-black, the Bolt’s ultra-simple design – four cylinders of solid wood held together by a metal ring – belies its sleek, urbane looks. 41cm high, the Bolt Stool is available at Nest for £392.
Playing on his love for organic and natural shapes, Duchaufour Lawrance’s new range called Borghese includes this coffee table (again available in either natural, or black-stained oak), £1,394; and the astonishing sofa, priced from £3,140.
Two distinct palettes have been produced: one to appeal to lovers of bold, primary colours – the Jekyll – and those who prefer more muted tones, the Hyde.
As for us? Well, Livingetc just couldn’t decide… so we’ll better have a few of both, please. Monstrous!
