Influences 2011/2012: Un-plugged by Fran├žois Bernard
Toolives Collection presented at Un-plugged Trend exhibition during Maison&Objet

“It is urgent that we let go in order to escape the pressures of our culture of speed and standardization. People are unplugging, slowing down, and cultivating the joyful frugality of ages past. The new luxury looks to simplified creature comforts. We are rediscovering a taste for the near and known and a local flavor. Period pieces are revitalizing the archives of folklore and archetypal forms. Without nostalgia, but with modesty, we are awakening the intense pleasure of the present moment.” Fran├žois Bernard
