Online design platform The Invisible Collection has launched a capsule collection with French architecture and design studio Uchronia. The 15-piece line from Paris-based Uchronia, founded by Julien Sebbag, builds on the playful design codes that have characterised its previous collaborations, with the likes of Jour/Né, Nina Ricci and jeweller Dolly Cohen.

‘Uchronia Wave’, the studio’s debut eclectic collection of furnishings and objects, encompasses everything from coffee tables to door wedges. Highlights include the technically accomplished ‘Peanut’ dining table, made in collaboration with Raku specialist Fabienne L’Hostis and boldly marrying bright hues with a distinctive curving silhouette. The peanut- or hourglass-shaped tabletop is delicately composed of panels of Raku ceramic (the Japanese ceramic technique creates signature random cracks in the finished piece). The curving table is cleverly designed to ensure each guest can see everyone else, and is available in a range of different finishes.

The ‘Sunny 2 Chair’ loveseat, designed with wood marquetry specialist Victor de Rossi, rethinks a classic 18th-century design, imbuing it with a contemporary edge. Other pieces take on the experimental forms the studio is known for, with unexpected details in a juxtaposition of form, texture and pattern creating surprising results. In the ‘Flower Coffee Table’, a collaboration with craftsman David Roma, a purple matt resin tabletop adds a mischievous finish.

In the hands of Bruno Hugounenq, a door wedge resembles marble thanks to his mastery of the art of Venetian stucco, a technique carried through to a range of unique plates in pastel hues.

This first furniture collection encompasses Uchronia’s eclectic design codes, building on Sebban’s past projects, which also include two restaurants, at the Galeries Lafayette and the Museum of Modern Art in Paris. §
