« Part 20: All I can say is, "wow!!" Part 21 of Creative Woodworking series Part 22: Is it a table or a desk??? »

The Paris, France-based design team of Bonsoir Paris is made up of graphic designers, Rémy Clémente & Morgan Maccari. Along with their team they created Duramen, a series of sculptures, which began as wooden frames that are then reimagined into something indistinguishable. The sculptures create juxtaposition between the distorted nature of the designs themselves and their use of fine woods such as oak, fir, wenge, pear, and linden.

I am in love with this. I want to do this! I am suffering with new ideas and projects and not enough time. This coming year is going to be even busier, but this gives me a great idea for #9 of my sculptures. Thank you.
