I Dream of Luxury

Blausee table/bench is a unique piece inspired from the rituals of my grandfather’s walks through forests searching for stones that he would slowly and patiently collect for the sole purpose of building his cabin. As a child I often accompanied him on his walks through forests and abandoned stone quarries. Today those moments are an invaluable memory and represent my idea of luxury. Blausee is a low table/bench made from a special limestone found in the Swiss Alps. This limestone is particular due to its range in color going from red to blue. Some semi finished elements, found on the stone quarry site, were the initial source of this project which represents a dialogue between natural shapes and designed ones. In the manner of a readymade, the platter is simply placed on four circular legs. This piece of furniture can be used as a low table or bench for the interior
or exterior.
