sofa

A structure comprised of pieces of birch plywood, that can be easily dismantled, covered with a thin artisanal felt mattress and sheepskins
chosen with the utmost care, as well as hand made cushions upholstered in old traditional hemp fabric.

Each piece, designed by Les Foins, is unique and extremely limited in quantity.

Lights

Initially a small collection of classic Georges Pelletier lamps and a desire to find appropriate lampshades for them. The result: handmade hemp or linen rope lampshades, an encounter with Georges Pelletier and several other lamps, the same as he has produced since the ‘70s
and several new “re-editions“ based on earlier models.

Knives

Mr Funaki works with iron, very old and pure iron that he relentlessly seeks, sometimes even in the hinge of a very old door.
He then reworks and recasts the iron to produce small simple and beautiful Japanese knives. The handle
is wrapped in a fine strip of leather and/or natural fiber, and varnished.

Ceramics

Mr Isamu models Shigaraki clay to produce small monolithic vases baked in a wood-fired oven. Each vase is baked directly in the fire from 3 to 5 times,
at temperatures approaching 2,200 degrees Farhenheit. There is no enamel,
 the oxidization of the ashes
and the steam create the beautiful glaze colors.

La Remue

Les Foins has its fragrance, la Remue. La remue was originally the movement of cattle from summer pastures to Alpine pastures.
It may also designate a small wooden chalet that can be dismantled, used as a stop-off en route to Alpine pastures.

amber

Beautiful polished amber simply mounted on fine strings of linen or hemp.

nomads

Two custom made pieces of furniture in birch plywood incorporating a small nomadic kitchen to temporarily outfit a van.
