Stephane Quatresous’s designs have that found-in-a-factory feel. His brand name is Atelier154 and their loft style showroom can be found on rue Oberkampf, (I’ll let you guess the number on the street). This is in the trendy east Paris neighbourhood of Menilmontant. It’s called industrial furniture, not that the groovy homes and businesses that can afford these pieces will see any more industry activity than the occasional power drill to hang a picture. Prices of recuperated industrial furniture have hiked up so much with their growing popularity that making new ones now makes sense. This wheeled steel table, that remind me of market barrows, comes in different lengths, widths, colours and finishes. So it’s far more one-off than the genuine factory stuff.
