When I first saw the CELLAE collection that French artist Francois Bauchet did in felt for Galerie Kreo, introduced two years ago at Design Miami, I was intrigued. Bauchet, who began his career as a designer in the early 80s, has created an entire collection of furniture made of sheets of industrial felt in gray. By soaking the textile in resin, he was able to transform the felt into a structural material, that allows him to created unexpected forms, challenging the boundaries of the fiber. In fact, the felt looks like a semi-precious stone at first glance. Surprisingly, the material is strong enough to support itself and the weight of the furniture's contents. Each piece, meticulously crafted, is produced in a limited edition of 8. At the recent Design Miami, Kreo introduced new forms of a desk, consoles, book shelves, coffee tables, side tables, small wall-shelves, all in cream color, which entails the collection with a new identity.
