The furniture collection offers the possibilities of functional storage space. The biggest portraits are especially designed for coats and jackets, hats and umbrellas, while others dedicate themselves to discretely store books, mail and keys.
The collection comprises also wall bookcases in the guise of singular and emblematic creations. These illustrious romantic and dreamlike individuals conceal shelves where to place books or confidential written works. Some of them, in a safe-like manner, have secret little trap doors, whose existence is solely known to the owner.
“Les Dandys are the result of a work of research realized by the creative duo Rachel and Benoît Convers. Exquisite design meet graphic creation, freedom of conception and quality of realisation, contemporaneousness and timelessness” say at Ibride to ArchiPanic.
