A trip to Indonesia in 1990 proved fateful for Jerome Abel Seguin and marked a turning point in the designer’s career. Inspired by the natural beauty of the land and the felled mahogany trees dotting the ground in central Java, Seguin realized the potential of wood as an artistic medium. The result is a collection of sculptures, furniture, and bas-reliefs constructed using a range of wood including teak, kalengo, and black palm-tree, among others.
Seguin has since relocated to Bali where he and his team source local materials to construct unique pieces with a natural and contemporary aesthetic, including furniture crafted using recycled spare parts of found machinery.
