Face à Face // Style and Material

This season, Face à Face creates a bold, futurist universe teeming with transformation and metamorphosis. Pascal Jaulent, co-founder and Chief Creative Officer, with his team of artistic designers, explore the alchemy between neon, transparent iridescent colors.

The newest collection from FACE A FACE reveals precious materials crafted with prismatic reflections and bright resonances. Together they form a new cosmos of stellar dimension.

With new concepts such as YAYOI, KEITH and BAHIA, deconstruction is always at play. Each defines a new interlocking theme of the distinct construction elements of a frame – embedded within another to form a mysterious puzzle.

Further defining the collection are the use of lines as a graphical element. Circulating from one concept to the next, each loses itself in a labyrinth of MAZES as highlighted in BOCCA LEMON’s eye, the discerning fold in HOLLOW and suspended within the design of TADAO.

Experience the latest creations from FACE A FACE: an exclusive gallery of bright, graphical concepts where material and style interweave seamlessly.

Mazes

MAZES reveals an optical game that evokes both the powerful and unique graphical details of a labyrinth. A bicolor or tricolor marquetry metamorphoses the concept from one hue to the other, depicting a versatile motif. Inspired by Art Deco, the interlacing of the graphic lines creates an optical game with “domino effects” that is reflected in its colored tips. With finesse and lightness, MAZES is crafted in two shapes: a sharp, cut panto and a hexagonal square.
