“COLLECTION PARTICULIÈRE” by david/nicolas
Two one-off pieces designed upon request to two collectors
passionate for pens as one can be for paintings.
These gentlemen asked for a custom made piece worthy of
preserving their collection. Each piece has the name of its owner encrypted in “morse code”, making it exclusive.
A handmade polished stainless steel extrusion is embedded inside a massive maple wood shell that is levitated by two hand-sculpted wooden legs on the front, and a single one on the back made of
stainless steel. The drawers are covered in Alcantara textile and the interior is made of thermoformed velvet.
david/nicolas is a Beirut based design studio co-founded in 2011 by David Raffoul and Nicolas Moussallem. Two designers whose
experiences, both locally and from abroad, filter into their work enriching the content and ultimately the aesthetics.
The philosophy of the studio is born from teamwork, which by
definition implies working together, but it is often the different approaches, and diverging opinions that give the spaces and objects they work on their character, story and unique personalities.
