Founded in 1995, Bleu Nature came of Frank Lefebvre’s unique vision for driftwood. His passion is to breathe new life into driftwood, to combine it with other material like pebbles, lacquered wood, lacquered metal, leather, skins or acrylic glass.
Every year, a team from Bleu Nature combs beaches for pieces of driftwood. Large or small, straight or twisted—each piece deserves special attention. This drift wood needs no further processing because the water has frozen it in time forever. All Bleu Nature creations are born of an encounter between the technical mastery of a Bleu Nature’s craftsman and the prolonged work of nature. Nature has fashioned each piece of driftwood over time, rendering every item we produce unique in both form and dimension.
With the expert combination of craftsmanship and industrial design, Bleu Nature creates stylish and luxurious furniture and lighting which radiates exquisite taste.
Here, time is the material, erosion is the concept and wear is the beauty
Michael Yeung attributes his core concept of furniture as functional art to a professor at his Canadian Art School, where the young student was preparing for his Masters in architecture. Exploration is the key to his design process and Yeung is known for re-thinking conventional expectations of the materials he works with.
Drawing inspiration from the automation and aviation industries Yeung brings an element of the surreal to his designs. Fragmented, spacial geometry and bold fluid forms characterize Yeung’s remarkable designs.
Each piece is designed to be visually appealing from every angle. Much like a sculptor, Yeung designs his furniture with a view of how the light will reflect and how it will cast shadows of the piece in the room, accentuating each curve and line to have the most visual impact. Comfort and functionality is an integral part of every Michael Yeung design, making each piece a functional piece of art.
