Charivari - Liquorice Frame
Juliette Liberman trained as a cabinetmaker and has worked abroad. With her training, she is able to apply her expertise with wood and other materials such as lacquer and metal to the furniture she creates. The prototype Charivari bench, with a seat envelope initially made from wood, was her final graduation piece, which she presented to the ENSAD panel in 2004. The design is the result of her exploration of wood-working techniques, using the same steam-bending procedure traditionally employed by shipwrights to construct the ribs of boats.
