London Design Festival 2013: the restaurateurs behind east London restaurant Les Trois Garçons have launched a furniture collection in collaboration with Portuguese manufacturer De Pau (+ slideshow).

The collection marks the launch of L3G Designs, an interior design firm led by Hassan Abdullah, Michel Lasserre and James Gold, co-owners of Les Trois Garçons and London bar LoungeLover.

The first collection, called DP pour Les Trois Garçons, launched last week during London Design Festival and comprises twelve pieces including side tables, coffee tables, shelves, sideboards and seating.

Speaking to Dezeen at the launch event, creative director Abdullah said that the collection was designed to fit in different environments. "Having the possibility to change the shape and look of the items also maximises the appeal and the practicality of the items," he told Dezeen. "For instance the coffee table made of two triangles could be reconfigured from a square coffee table to suit a rectangular space."

Abdullah further explained that customers can custom-select materials, colours and sizes for each product. "For L3G Designs, we think it is very important that clients can order the products to their own requirements without the price of bespoke furniture," he said. "Not everyone has the same colour scheme or preference for the type of wood, marble and metals."

One side table has two brass-clad drawers stacked on top of one another. "It pivots for ease of use and it is also stackable to create a chest or a tallboy," explained the designers.

A second table features three stacked units of brass, marble and oak, which gradually increase in size towards the top.

A third cube-shaped side table has contrasting colours and retractable sliding trays on all four sides.

A series of interlocking tables with coloured edges and of varying heights form a second coffee table design. "The taller one can be used for TV dinners or playing games," explained the designers. "The configuration of the tables can be changed to create an ever-changing look."
