First prize winner of the international contest for contemporary Aubusson tapestry. 
Confluentia project, at the junction between furniture and tapestry, joins in a weaving carpeted furniture and pill rug of Aubusson.
Two wood bedside tables embellished with a tapestry are connected by it, creating a new link, a part of space in the space.
The object appears as a landscape, in the manner of the Aubusson tapestry of the seventeenth and eighteenth century, it is seen as a flat stretch between two woody reliefs.
A domestic landscape creating by the union of two familiar typologies in housing world: side furniture and rug. The tapestry presents an abstract drawing suggesting a peaceful space, like a lake, while being lively by the gush of two headwaters inviting to contemplation.
We can see the pattern of a topographical map, by definition, the drawing of a place. A hybrid territory, a micro-landscape between design furniture and tapestry.
The user goes inside the landscape, lives the scene and becomes an actor in the tapestry. Thus, the action is not only set-up by the look of the tapestry but also " with, around, on".
The interlacing of threads and colors is mixed up to build Confluentia, point of confluence between perception in-visu and experience in-situ.
