"When we make something with our hands, we can tweak it until we achieve the result we are looking for. This is something that can’t be done in serial production. And when we do it with passion and pleasure, we transfer a part of ourselves into this object."

Ludovic Avenel makes limited-series furniture, by hand, in his Parisian workshop. He brings a contemporary edge to a classical art, pairing traditional woods with different materials, and borrowing unusual techniques from other cultures.
