Galerie Gosserez presents the hybrid “Jean-Jean” shelving unit by the young trio Numéro 111. Two units with different sizes and wood species are placed side by side to form a piece of furniture to be used as required, a paradoxical format on the verge of tumbling, simply bound by two thumbscrews which allow it to subtly become one. Independent and back to back, each module becomes the necessary complement of the other. The rough, natural wood interlocks and confronts the superficial and smooth appearance of the painted wood to give rise to a sculptural and functional piece.
N°111 consists of 3 individuals, Sophie Françon, Jennifer Julien and Grégory Peyrache. Comprising two designers and one architect, the team asserts a global approach, not restricting themselves to one scale, method, or discipline. Sensitive to forms and materials, N°111 above all observes everyday life, questioning surroundings and suggesting communal creations, established from shared thoughts and styles. Each project attempts to closely interlink the design and manufacturing process. The N°111 office convenes around various projects, with objects, furniture, architecture, interior design and scenography as scope.
