...under these amazing fronds that were unveiled in the garden of the Mediateca di San Teresa at the recently concluded concluded 2017 Milan Design Week. Shown at the Wallpaper* Handmade exhibit and presented by The Invisible Collection, Le Refuge by Marc Ange consists of a slatted wooden base under metal stems and perforated leaves and creates a modern tropical oasis. The contemplative, palm-shaded daybed installation creates a lush fantasy setting but in fact came about as a projection of a childhood memory of the designer: its leaves forming shelter from the sun and an escape from reality, just like the imaginary jungle that grows in the room of a child with a vivid imagination.

Le Refuge is available in three colours: pink, black or gold.
