The 'Duramen Series' by Bonsoir Paris features an organic and dynamic sculpture collection that challenges the preconceived notions associated with traditional wood-working. Pieces are soft and irregular in their shape showing a tremendous craftsmanship quality.

This bold sculpture series is a distinctive and modern take on wood-made design with an innovative and imaginative use of a material that is often heavy and predominantly linear. The detailed and delicate pieces are carved, sanded and finished by hand. These works are constructed from a variety of different woods including oak and fir.

Bonsoir Paris designer duo made up of Rémy Clémente and Morgan Maccarisuch focus on a new way of working with wood. Natural colors and textures are contrasted with darker elements and materials, helping to bring out every contour and crevice of the complex carvings.
