Whilst the <<Harry >> armchair is carving its place as a best seller at Ligne Roset, this year Eric Jourdan has designed Dino, a superb range of tables, desk and storage based on the asymmetry of colours and shapes familiar to Ligne Roset presented at the last Maison&Objet show. A play on contrasts that the designer masters to perfection.

The Dino collection is very architectural, I wanted to suspend blocks within the sides (curves here) and work on the level and colour differences. I had some Marcel Breuer structures in mind. I like the idea that the construction, the assembly of the volumes is present in the interpretation of the furniture which is in general closed boxes. With Dino everything is visually prominent.” Eric Jourdan

With Dino, play is evident between the enveloping curves and the strict parallelepiped which is Eric Jourdan’s unique universally recognizable style (c.f. Hyannis Port range for Cinna (2003) or the Meubles Traversants for Galerie Peyroulet (2000). Here the shell is veneered walnut and enrobes the rear and the right-hand side of the collection. The other elements could  be monochromatic or mixed with shades of grey and blue. Available finishes: rear shell completely finished in walnut veneer. Items are either monochrome in satin-finish mastic, argile or elephant lacquer, or two-tone. In this case, the left-hand section may be in one colour, and the right-hand in anothe. The right-hand section is also available in lavender blue lacquer. Brilliant-polished aluminium base.
