Wood Sculptures

The Duramen Series by Bonsoir Paris

The Duramen Series, designed by French duo Remy Clemente and Morgan Maccari of Bonsoir Paris, consists of  wooden sculptures that allow the mind to visualize an objects form that has been twisted from its original skeleton. Each piece, in the shape of a picture frame, was transformed to a point where they couldn’t properly function and almost unrecognizable. The choice of noble materials (Oak, Fir, Wenge, Pear, Linden) and the quest for finesse, enables them – with the DURAMEN series – to position themselves on the razor’s edge between two opposites, that of the deformed and that of the elegant, instinctive and thoughtful.
