In 2015 POOL designed the GRID Daybed, in reference to the Bauhaus style and in honour of the duo's graphic talents.
In 2016 POOL developed the concept and transformed GRID into an all modular system by creating basic modules. They can have a number of configurations: a 3 seater sofa, a corner sofa...
Each element retains the identity of the original daybed: a strapped wooden structure held up by a black tubular steel leg; all topped with geometrically patterned square or round fabric or leather cushions. Coated steel, walnut/oak, leather, polyester foam, fabric covering from the PETITE FRITURE selection.
GRID is a collection of :
- individual elements: Daybed, 2 seater sofa, armchair.
- modules with or without armrests: 2 seater sofa, armchair.
- other modules: stool, occasional table.
GRID comes with an oak or walnut frame, and round or rectangular
cushions. Choice of fabric and leather from the PETITE FRITURE fabric selection.
POOL is a duo composed of Léa Padovani (1981) French of Iranian-Italian heritage and Sébastien Kieffer (1982), French, based in Paris. In 2010, POOL created a collective concept, the goal of which is to explore associations between objects, architecture and images. Beyond the obvious presence of an object, its beauty and function, the designers search for a multiplicity of meanings and highlight the emotions and reference points. In 2012 they were nominated‘Talents à la carte' during Maison&Objet, ‘Young New Talent' for the AD and received the LABEL VIA for the W&W lighting ceiling system manufactured by ALTER.
They have since been edited by La Chance, Habitat and have created numerous
scengraphies and projects for Cassina, Café Craft, Biennale de Kortrijk...
