Delicious by Mathieu Lehanneur

| 12 comments

French designer Mathieu Lehanneur will present a series of metal storage units with quilted surfaces at Tools Galerie in Paris next week.

Called Delicious, the range draws on the metal sheeting that American hot dog stands are often made of and combines it with a quilting pattern.

Lehanneur will present the project as part of an exhibition called Métal(s), which will showcase projects by designers including Chris Kabel and Oskar Zieta that focus on metal forming techniques.

    It’s a cute idea, but it reminds me of space blankets or foil insulation. Instead of stand-alone cabinets, I could see the doors being used as cabinets doors in an industrial-inspired kitchen.
