We have always been fans of interesting and new works in the field of wood. Even though it always seems to focus on more traditional looks and outcomes, we especially like this new ‘Duramen Series’ of wooden sculptures by Bonsoir Paris, because it is somewhat a modern interpretation and use of the material. The amount of details and delicate work that is needed to achieve the outcome is very impressive.
“french design duo rémy clémente and morgan maccari of bonsoir paris have designed ‘duramen series’, consisting of three sculptures. for each piece, the shape of a picture frame has been manipulated to a point where it can no longer function as such, but still remains recognizable. the forms have been carved, sanded and finished by hand, out of various types of woods such as oak and fir. the contrast between the natural colors of and textures of the material help define the detailed contours of the carvings.”
Take a detailed look at several sculptures of the series and full credits follow after the jump.
