Natural fiber

With a dual perspective, dual skills, both technical and aesthetic, both designers align original materials with their sustainable function to bring to life relevant objects.

Portrait

The Antoine Fritsch and Vivien Durisotti approach is to be assessed as a whole. Beyond the use of natural materials such as bamboo and rattan, it is the creative process that gives value and meaning to the process. They optimize the natural qualities of the characteristics of all materials they use.

The signature of the Fritsch-Durisotti agency is the quality of the curves. It reflects the rigor of work carried out by a team of two, working together with accuracy and high standards.

The challenge is to find the “right tension” by pushing materials to their limits, never ignoring their essence. Performance is then evaluated within the workshop, with all the benefits of the process of a successful alliance forged between an industrial approach and a respect for the fundamental laws of nature.

The encounter with La Maison TURRINI

The desire to work with La Maison TURRINI came out of a meeting of minds. A business leader, Christian TURRINI, engaged in eco design right from the start, teams with expertise and a high level of shared values: it is on this essential basis that the partnership was built. It became concrete with the emergence of a first range of furniture, the BEE collection.

One entrepreneur, Christian TURRINI, two designers, Antoine Fritsch and Vivien DURISOTTI, all converging on the same core values: respect for nature and the optimization of the natural qualities of materials.

It is on this basis that the partnership was built. It became concrete with the emergence of a first range of furniture, the BEE collection.

In this project each party had its place, playing its part in a complementarity of skills and a common sense of standards out of which were born the clean lines of this collection.

BEE is a collection of indoor and outdoor furniture – chair, table, bench, chaise longue… – made of bamboo fiber or opaque PMMA, based on a honeycomb structure with finely shaped designs and voluntarily contemporary aesthetics.
