Designer Mathieu Lehanneur creates the Ocean Memories collection, which is comprised of furniture crafted from marble and bronze. The capsule features a selection of tables, stools, and benches designed to imitate the surface of the ocean's movement. The series is crafted using a unique 3D special effects software, often used by the film industry but implemented in Ocean Memories to translate the ocean currents into a form that can be digitally applied. Following this process, blocks of stone are cut by machine to replicate these digitally captured structures before a hand polishing process resulting in a glossy, liquid finish.

Showcasing at the Carpenter's Workshop Gallery in Paris, Leganneur incorporates this digital technology to create monolithic benches, tables, and stools in grey and white marble, and polished bronze as well.
