Boxes

Léa Longis, as she was graduating at ENSCI-Les Ateliers (Paris), had already largely contributed to pioneering initial shaping strategies for the material. She thus continued her research on the theme of boxes so as to turn densified wood into a noble material, using the codes of iconic precious materials such as cut crystal and its facets to apply them to wood. The result is a series of boxes with a lid in densified wood, reminiscent of those which adorned 19th century sitting rooms. Her interpretation, however, is radically contemporary.
