Mono Editions launches furniture in cork and paper pulp

Launched with a pop-up in Paris (23-27 March 2022), Mono Edition presents modular designs by architects, crafted from sustainable single materials

Former gallerist Laetitia Ventura launched new brand Mono Editions with the aim of ‘discovering new talent and capturing the spirit of the times.’ Launched in Paris with a pop-up shop (136, rue Saint-Honoré , 23-27 March 2022) and two inaugural collaborations, Mono Editions focuses on pieces made with single materials defined by a sustainable approach.

The first two collections feature pieces made of cork and paper pulp, featuring minimalist, modular forms in the single materials. The brand’s manifesto outlines its ambition ‘to limit the production chain in order to create design objects that are first and foremost accessible and sustainable objects of desire.’ Its furniture is imagined to be durable both from a manufacturing and aesthetic point of view, celebrating materials and craftsmanship.

Made of pulp paper, the Papierre collection by Romain Freychet and Antoine Prax of design studio Gramme ‘defies gravity’, thanks to the appearance of white stone and the lightness of paper. Looking like carved rocks, the geometric, grooved monoliths are inspired by classical architecture and their simple forms become a lamp, a chair and two tables. Their pieces, explain the architects, ‘evoke the aura of totems: the aesthetic borders on the spiritual. The architecture is combined with the sculptural.’

A different approach was chosen by architect William Ventura, whose Liege collection comprises modular furniture – a console, a dining room table and a bookcase – made of dark cork. According to the architect, the pieces combine the spontaneity of art with the durability of architecture.’ The modular nature of the Liege collection is expanded by the possibility of taking each piece apart, for example to change the legs’ height on the table or console, or to add to the bookcase so that the piece can evolve with the interior of a space. §
