paris design week 2011 featured life-sized sculptures by french company frédérique morrel. their works are one of a kind– from each underlying polyurethane taxidermy shape to the hand-stitched exterior. the figures featured in the NOW! le off

exhibition are covered with the husband and wife design team’s signature vintage found needlework. they introduce a colorful, cozy layer to their work by use of these discarded tapestries, saved from oblivion. the selection is representative of their dreaming collection (‘visitors’, ‘g[hosts]’, and ‘passe-murailles’), rather than their livable work such as poufs, cushions, footstools, seating, lamps, trays and candlesticks. the motivation behind their aesthetic is to create work that is to feel at home within the surroundings of the individual that possesses the object.
