Layered Storage, Delicious as Pastry

Categories: Furniture + Lighting

06_Schonbuch_1

Just try not to be wowed by these fanciful storage units, designed by Tokyo-based French architect Emmanuelle Moureaux—whose similarly fanciful architecture was previously featured here. Her Mille-Feuille (named for the layered French pastry, sometimes known as the Napoleon) storage pieces are comprised of exactingly cut solid oak planks, stacked and lacquered in a range of color gradients. Available in two-drawer, three-drawer, and four-drawer units—and lacquered in a staggering 8-, 12-, and 21-color scheme—Mille-Feuille is a collaboration with the Bavarian furniture manufacturer Schönbuch, which is producing only a limited number of the painstakingly crafted units. Not surprisingly, Mille-Feuille’s price tag is commensurate with its status as art, only disguised as furniture.

‘The product was nearly ready for production right after Milan, we only changed the drawers from silver-covered MDF to solid stained oak, since we believed this more traditional form of drawer manufacture would fit the product better and enhance the quality,’ Ress explains.

‘The product was nearly ready for production right after Milan, we only changed the drawers from silver-covered MDF to solid stained oak, since we believed this more traditional form of drawer manufacture would fit the product better and enhance the quality,’ Ress explains.Now, some six months later, the fruits of their joint endeavours are ready to share with a broader public. Specialising in high quality foyer and hallway furniture, Schönbuch knows exactly how to make an entrance. And being a Bavarian firm, it seemed appropriate that the launch presentation of its new Mille-Feuille storage units took place in Munich’s noted fashion concept store Schwittenberg, where the colourful, stand-alone statement pieces proved a perfect foil for the stricter sartorial lines of clothing brands APC, Acne and Perret Schaad.Available in S, M and L versions, with two, three and four drawers respectively, the price tag for a Mille-Feuille ranges from €3,870 to €7,510, but this is no off-the-peg product. Lacquered in eight, twelve or 21 colours (Schönbuch had to invest in a new paint mixing machine to meet Emmanuelle Moureaux’s exact specifications), the Mille-Feuilles take a long time and extremely skilled craftsmanship to produce. Furthermore, the company do not expect to make more than a small number of examples at first. After all, these pieces are showstoppers, not staples.Emmanuelle Moureaux has designed one-off furniture pieces before for her buildings and interiors, but this is her first series piece and, judging by the bouyant mood at the launch party, we get the distinct impression it won’t be her last.

  1. These book-stack-shaped drawers look amazing! You really wonder how one would use them to store something (as the title of this blog post hints) until you see the photo! I love these funky drawers. Perfect for a teen’s bedroom or study.
