The designer creates lamps, chairs, tables, and bookcases out of easily found and affordable materials. By bending, cutting and liquidizing the material to obtain a desired shape, Emilie Mazeau-Langlais creates cardboard furniture pieces that have an antiquated look. Her ultra-light and cheap version of a classic Louis XV commode looks both authentic and beautiful. The pieces are covered with beeswax coating; an old-fashioned finish that ensures longevity.
