This centrepiece, curved to indecency, takes its reference from the form of the female body. But Pod of drawers, which is completely handmade, also repeats the outline of the Anthropomorphe chest of drawers by André Groult, while playing with sophisticated positioning of riveted aluminium sheets, closer to generous flexible and stylised shapes, so this piece of furniture can look like a body.
