Materials: Solid oak stained with Indian ink and carved with gouge, gold leaf
Inspiration: The “Dolomites” collection plays on the opposition between the softness of the curves and the roughness of the reliefs that remind us of the natural lines that are sometimes found by the sea, offering magnificent pebbles polished by the roll of the water at the foot of steep cliffs, as carved. The deep black of the Indian ink lights up on the upper part, recalling the effect of the sun on the peaks, and the golden slits in the leaf are reminiscent of torrents, weaving between the rocks.

Inspired by the world around us – stones like humans, landscapes or stories that relate in mirror – Hoon Moreau tries to transcribe them through her visual language in the furniture she creates. Poems, songs of joy, fairy tales or nostalgic reminiscences intermingle in an insane harmony in motion. It offers to the gaze, chests of drawers, tables, lamps or screens, in a set where delicate taut lines are linked, monochrome colored shades, dense presences which take flight. Time and dreams come together here. The secret movement of singular beauty appears and invites itself into our daily lives. His sculpted furniture marries poetic creativity and meticulous realization, shattering the barrier between art and life, beauty and utility. In search of a symbiosis, on the one hand between the quintessence of nature and the crystallization of sublime beauty, on the other hand between artistic creation and functionality, Hoon Moreau offers a new aesthetic adventure that becomes reality.
