My new console (I wish)

Not sure if you can say 'console' in English. I saw this sort of long cupboard thing at the Maison & Objet show back in January, at which time it was still a prototype. Designed by Antoine & Manuel (whose exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs is finishing in ten days) as part of their Tout Va Bien (Everything's OK) collection, it is soon to be exposed at the Salone del Mobile in Milan. I would have liked to go, but all the hotels were booked up six months in advance...

I think it's an absolutely magnificent, silly, beautiful piece of furniture and quite probably an infuriating dust trap too. If only a had a room big enough to put it in...

More about the Antoine & Manuel long cupboard thing on the Barcelon Design site. Worryingly, there's no mention of a price...


  1. waouh.

    il paraît qu'il y a de nouvelles technologies incroyables de 'shaping' de meubles et de pièces d'œuvres d'art basés sur des logiciels de calcul en temps réel à qui ont a asservi des machines de découpe et qui te font littéralement sortir ton objet à partir d'une préparation de base... il paraît que c'est très impressionnant.

    en gros, tu dessines sur ordi... la machine te construit l'objet quasi en même temps au fur et à mesure.
