The Insulaire range by Numéro 111 incorporates rattan cane as the structural support in most of the pieces, both as bent sections and straight poles.
"We were impressed by its toughness and also by its suppleness and its capacity to assume varied shapes, more or less complex," said the designers.
The material forms the external frame of a sofa, holding rounded upholstered cushions and supporting a back that wraps around one end and leaves the other open.
Two resin platforms fit into the cane frames of low and high side tables, and the top one of each is removable.
Small shelves and a mirror can be hung from the horizontal members of loose grid of poles that form a screen. A vertical fabric panel with a large pocket can be also be attached to the side as an acoustic shield and storage pouch.
Rattan is laid down in strips as a flat surface and lacquered pink for a section of a rug, which also has a softer tatami-influenced area.
Upholstered pillows have rigid backs and handles that can be folded back to create an angled back support.
The shade of the lamp slides up and down the wooden stand so it can be used as either a floor lamp or a table light.
