Jean-Luc Le Mounier, Empreinte Side Tables, FR, 2020
The Empreinte Side Tables feature a top finished with panels of satiny, fluted ebony laid out in a geometric mosaic pattern. The oak interior of the drawers are finished using the shou-sugi-ban method, an ancient Japanese finishing technique that preserves wood by charring it with fire. In addition to being aesthetically striking and elegant, the finishing technique strengthens the integrity of the oak. Inspired by the texture of the oak, Le Mounier has used the charred surface of the interior as inspiration for the cast bronze legs of the console.
Drawing inspiration from natural elements, art, fashion, and architecture Jean-Luc Le Mounier’s works mix strength of form with a lexicon of uncommon details and imagery that is both graphic and elegant. The broad range of woods and metals used, which can be as diverse as sycamore, ebony, bronze, steel, enamel, or sand, as well as the unpredictable way in which Le Mounier manipulates them, sets the artist apart.
