M.&Mme is an original furniture collection designed by artist Valentin Loellmann. Here is the concept behind his creations: The pieces I makes have always developed from a curiosity; a curiosity towards materials, their travels and the stories they tell. With this project, I try to use the stories of my materials in order to create new and strong narratives with them. The traces of oil and salt water in the bankirai wood that is used in the pieces presents a nostalgia towards their previous lives as ship planks, but the old craftsmanship experienced within this material is provided with the distinct contemporary signature of the creator. If you look closely, you will notice a human element is added to the designs, which makes the “story” behind the creation more authentic.
