French television reporter is designer of organic chestnut furniture
After having experienced the industrial mechanics as a television reporter, Alain Dupasquier, a suitable decorative arts and French raised man is happy to use his other powers and ideas.
This was based on the know-how in working with løvgrene that characterize the area of the Limousin region of France that he comes from.
The big French stall at Formland Autumn 2009 in Fairs MCH Herning shows Alain Dupasquier results of his creativity and his efforts. It takes the form of outdoor garden furniture from the chestnut-Limousin region – sofas, stools and chairs for adults and children.
Chestnut from Limousin-region has a lot of tannin, so they do not rot. Therefore it lends itself particularly well to have outdoor furniture. Chestnut resist insects and bad weather, and if you leave the furniture standing out, they quickly get a beautiful silver gray tinge.
Besides pursuing an old rural tradition Alain Dupasquier also uses the local ecological resources.
A total of seven design are represented at the great French stall at Formland in Autumn 2009. The tool is organized by the Franco-Danish company Abildgaard Consult Ltd and the director, Pia Abildgaard, is Danish.
