Montreal-based woodworker and designer Loïc Bard releases a collection that boasts maple wood furniture. However, the range -- from benches and stools to tables and utensils, has a rather interesting edge in terms of material treatment and sculptural integrity. For one, the designer was "inspired by the sense of touch and the human body" and this is exactly what he aimed to explore with the 'Bone' collection.
The maple wood furniture offerings are rather dualist in appearance. While some offerings are "blackened with a blowtorch," others are "bleached with milky veins resembling human skin."
The designs boast some exaggerated shapes that definitely contribute with a curious sculptural value to the strong aesthetic of Loïc Bard's 'Bone' collection.
