Jean-Luc Le Mounier believes that a project is only truly successful when his audience is able to explain to him what “it feels like to see [the] work and not the other way around.”

With Vers le Large he makes it easy—using the visual language of his home, the Breton coastline, his cabinet rests on legs modeled after pilings, which, as they would on a dock, extend well above the cabinet’s top. A border formed like the edge of a dock’s component planks sits just under the surface, completing this effect. Rendered in engraved wood and bronze, the piece features twelve drawers, hidden between its pilings and made of a warm sycamore.
