'Undulation' Unique Sideboard/Dresser by Aymeric Lefort

'Undulation' Unique Sideboard/Dresser in a rippled sycamore and ebony veneer with two hidden doors by Aymeric Lefort, France 2009.



'Undulation' comes from the optical illusion caused by the alternating light and dark veneer colours. The top and sides are in fact quite straight!



Aymeric Lefort (b. France 1971)



Lefort's decision to become a designer was inspired by the furniture of Jean Royere in his family home in France. After finishing his studies in cabinet making at the renowned Institut de St Luc in Tournai, where he specialised in design, he went on to complete his training in the workshops of cabinet makers, interior decorators, and upholsterers in Brussels where he was motivated by his desire to learn new techniques in the decorative arts.



These apprenticeships gave him a thorough grounding and an enviable technical knowledge in the art of cabinetmaking; this, combined with his commitment to the highest levels of craftsmanship which Lefort brings to his contemporary designs, continues a long tradition of French cabinetry.



Each collection Lefort produces contains his cultural heritage reinterpreted for the modern form to create a minimal, yet often sensual design. Inspired by architecture and with the rigorous techniques of the cabinet maker, Leforts pieces are characterised by the subtle blending of their elements, the quality of the finish and the combinations of materials.
