Interior architect Rodolphe Parente lends his skills to an exclusive furniture and lighting collection for French maison Pouenat

For its capsule collection, Pouenat enlisted the expertise of interior architect Rodolphe Parente, known for his skilful blending of textures and sensibilities. The range employs combinations of materials such as chiselled brass, textured glass and travertine for unusual geometrical and sculptural shapes accented with etchings. Each piece is crafted using an elementary or deconstructed method to which surface treatments are applied to make the material more expressive.

Designer Rodolphe Parente's collection for French metalwork specialist Pouenat uses contrasting materials, including brass, glass and stone in the Sunset suspension lamp, the Catwalk coffee table, the Glory console and the Hunk armchair.

Debuted at the PAD Paris 2018 fair in April, the 15-piece collection includes a series of wall and ceiling lights, as well as a sofa, armchair, mirror, side table and coffee table that are the pinnacle of contemporary French design; they also display the exceptional skills of the country's craftsmen. Among the highlights are the pendant-like rotatable Sunset ceiling light; the Catwalk coffee table formed by a rotating wheel on top of a burnished stone block; the sculpture-shaped Twink side table, the Glory console and the Hunk armchair made with a double skin that emphasises the beautiful contrast of materials.
