This project is a mixture of French typology. With its base structure made of the traditional "Thonet" tables and chairs, which can be found everywhere, the pieces were fused and remixed with a pop style, Japanese, manga element.
The purpose of this alteration is not a matter of "style" or look, it is intended to update, surprise and question stories that people might have in regards to this very traditional, existing and familiar design.
