Insulaire by Numéro111

View all 8 Photos

Numéro111’s Insulaire furnishings form an island of private space within the living room. The collection includes a screen, a rug, a lamp, a sofa, scatter cushions, and two flying tables. The screen defines the island space, providing a visual and acoustic barrier. Additionally, the piece juxtaposes natural and synthetic materials, namely rattan and polyester. Used throughout the collection, rattan is a climbing vine that is flexible yet defined and durable when harvested. Here, the rattan is shaped in canes and lacquered with colourless matte varnish for extra strength. Supporting the sofa and tables as well as the screen, rattan gives the furniture its bold yet gently curving lines. These lines wrap all around the sofa so that the piece is striking from every angle. A commanding centerpiece, the long sofa doubles as a daybed, allowing for ultimate relaxation. The flying tables are also flexible in their design, as the resin table tops can be adjusted to sit at the top or bottom of the rattan frames, transforming from end tables to open storage units. Likewise, the pink lamp can be adjusted for height and serves as an area lamp or reading light. Even the cushions offer flexibility. Made up of an ash core that is padded with foam rubber, wool, and nylon, the cushions can be scattered about as resting points throughout the space. Bringing the island together, the rug functions as the heart of the island. The thick foam and fabric mat is colorblocked in pink and gray, outlining the private space with a pop of color. Meant to be used like a Japanese tatami, the rug is considered a space for relaxing, a piece of furniture in and of itself. The Insulaire collection, taken as a whole, shapes one’s lounge space while bending to one’s relaxation needs, creating a serene island in the den.
