The DOT collection is a contemporary interpretation of the traditional Asian stool. Famous for their originality, but especially their quality, these stools inspired Reda Amalou to create a collection that focused on the material. Very strong visually, the pieces take their strength and character from the materials they are crafted from. Made from wood and hand polished to create a sleek surface. The DOT side tables are finished using a traditional hand applied lacquer. A minimum of 18 to 21 coats, sanded down between each coat, are required to obtain the perfect finish. This process gives depth and intensity to the colour, playing with the light on its high gloss finish surface. These products are handmade and variations may occur from piece to piece.
Proud of his French and Algerian dual culture, Reda Amalou is a citizen of the world that feeds on the cultures that surround and surprise him. Born in Paris, he studied in London at East London University and worked for twenty years on numerous hotel projects in Asia with a strong ecological tropism. His combination of minimalism, elegance and sobriety expressed in curves and noble materials, deep lacquer, bronze, leather, gives a strong sense of luxury to his collection.
