USIN-e Pleats Collection

Rémi Bouhaniche and Amaury Poudray are USIN-e, who will be showing at The Gallery next month. They’ve just launched a new collection called Pleats.

The series is composed of two trestles, one low table and one coat rack. In each object, the metal sheets link the wooden pieces together. Pleats pits the weight of the material against the empty space’s lightness.

The designers say, “In order to provide to each of the components, a vital breath, we use the emptiness to connect the materials. Through this range Pleats, we create a language both simple and sophisticated in between, the ‘haute couture’, industry and craft works.”
