Florent Degourc : SoCal shelves


Just received French designer Florent Degourc‘s latest work : SoCal is a set of shelves inspired by a trip he did to Southern California.

Whilst designing the shelves, Florent wanted to combine everything that reminded him of the Golden State way of life and the unique moments he spent there : an ecletic mix between encounters, bright colors, pelicans flying in formation, the simplicity of Palm Springs villas and the spirit of a famous designers duet (we guessed… Eames!). SoCal shelves are simply yet beautifully designed. The coral-colored elastane fabric is a lovely design detail inspired by pelicans’ throat pouches.

SoCal shelves – Materials : lacquered MDF and a elastane fabric – Dimensions : 80x18x11cm / 60x18x11cm / 38x16x9cm

About – “Cet ensemble d’étagères est le fruit d’un voyage à trois. Un mix entre rencontres, couleurs, et faune. J’ai voulu essayer de conjuguer tout ce qui me rappelle la Californie du Sud. Les couleurs chatoyantes, les pélicans volants en formation, la simplicité apparente de certaines villas de Palm Springs ou encore le trait d’un couple de designers célèbres.”

“Le dessin est simple et pour certains n’évoquera rien de plus que quelque chose de gratuit et sans intention particulière. Mais pour moi, chaque regard posé sur cette composition me rappelle des moments uniques et un mode de vie qui me fascinera encore longtemps.”
