Description Jean-Luc Le Mounier’s belief that furniture design holds infinite possibilities has fueled his creative process, resulting in works that are both highly evocative and cleverly functional. The dynamic hanging Papillon Cabinet II is assertive in form with two grand curved wings facing the cabinet’s cleverly hinged doors. The “wings” are finished in a satiny silver straw marquetry silhouetted against inner doors sheathed in black straw marquetry. The graphic doors open to reveal a delicate, lacy, bronze “gate” that encloses the cabinet’s two shelves and hidden compartments composed of amaranthe wood and a rich pink leather. The high level of attention to detail in both construction and design is a testimony to Le Mournier’s audacity.

Fascinated with wood, he started his training as a cabinetmaker in 1995. His passion for woodwork developed most notably during his ten-year apprenticeship with Les Compagnons du Devoir (Guildsmen). In turn, an association with legendary iconoclast designer, Maria Pergay helped shape Le Mounier’s penchant for eccentric furniture design driven by a deep relationship with sometimes unconventional materials.
