The Nuage table is a new variation of the Encre Table, a former work by Jérôme Faillant-Dumas. It is a poetic rendering of a cloud’s shape reflecting on a puddle on the Parisian streets. The table is an ode to artistry and painstaking craftmanship. Handmade by Lison de Caunes, the undisputed French specialist of straw marquetry, this piece taps into the great art deco tradition of crafting unique pieces with the marquetrey techniques. The straw is dried, opened, flattened, and then treated with a natural silica polish for impermeability and resistance. A most delicate work for the most exquisite tabletop.
After 15 years as Art Director for Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, Jérôme Faillant-Dumas founded Love Editions, designing furniture and Interior Design projects for private clients, stores and restaurants. In parallel, he works on the branding of major luxury brands and is specialized in designing packaging for them. Jérôme Faillant-Dumas is renowned for walking the tight rope between classicism and modernity. His timelessly classic pieces have a taste of perfection, whilst remaining tantalisingly daring. Straw marquetry and alabaster alongside plaster and plexiglass. A strong, gentle and thoroughly Parisian modernity.
