Objets - Dining
objets, the french word for "objects", serves as the central reference point for michael kirkpatrick's collection of furniture designs. here, classical and modern traditions are reinterpreted, creating a fresh contemporary idiom. using a palette of materials including rubbed dark oak veneers, full-grain pebbled leather, hand-etched bronzed metal, honed travertine stone and rich lacquered surfaces, michael's designs demonstrate a sensitivity to european scale and aesthetic refinement. each piece is elegantly simple, multifunctional in design, and suited to blend with a variety of architectural styles.
