Sylvain Willenz for Retegui : Alaka and Fabrika

A year ago at Maison&Objet, I fell for the low-key luxury and extreme elegance of French basque label Retegui‘s furniture.

They specialise in marble craftworks and have innovated in the development of 3D marble technology, enabling the stone to be considerably lightened while at the same time ensuring great solidity and strength. This year, they have asked Brussels-based designer Sylvain Willenz to sign new works : the Alaka collection (including a mirror, a coat hanger, shelves and coffee tables) and a versatile prop called Fabrika.

About – Alaka is an elegant collection, stripped of any ostentation, through which the use of bevelled edges and rounded angles impart a light softness to marble. The curved shape of the hangers, made possible thanks to CNC techniques, gives the marble a feeling of suppleness. The use of bevelling throughout the collection echoes the profile of the Alaka shelf structure giving it an additional defining feature.

Fabrika is an archetype, that of the craft. With this item, Sylvain Willenz seeks to represent Retegui Marble Works in a simple yet graphic way. Fabrika can be used on a desk and be used as each person sees fit.
