Powerfully expressive, this family of tables and coffee tables draws inspiration from the fluid, organic shapes of tree trunks, true sculptures produced by nature.
A masterful technique of high-end cabinetry made the creation of extremely complex curves and veneers possible. The contoured internal structure is in MDF, sheathed in larch veneered plywood which is then milled along the curved edges. The larch base in prefinished Dove Grey and Licorice lacquer can be paired with tops in the following finishes: open-pore stained ash in Licorice color. The underside has a matt finish in the same color as the top, in Smoked Glass laminated to extra-clear or Amber color glass. The 150 cm diameter top is only available in Calacatta marble.
The Lou table comes in both rectangular and round versions, in various sizes.
Minotti first began working with Christophe Delcourt, self-taught designer, in 2016.
Particularly esteemed for his on-trend, understated elegance, and his exceptional sensitivity to materials and colours, Christophe Delcourt made his debut on the French design scene at the end of the 1990s.
He stood out immediately for his extreme focus on materials and for the sartorial attention he paid to every structural detail, visible throughout all the production phases of his seats and furniture. In constant pursuit of perfection, and driven by a strong propensity for experimenting with textures, Christophe Delcourt owes his first steps in the industry and his professional growth to his close encounters with various artisans, including a blacksmith and a cabinet-maker, which helped him consolidate his skills as designer and maker.
In 2016, he came into contact with Roberto and Renato Minotti, whose curiosity was aroused by his elegant, contemporary version of the Parisian décorator-like style: an exquisite balanced combination of pure design, refined materials and impeccable workmanship with sophisticated attention to detail.
Christophe Delcourt interpreted the more decorative aspect of Minotti with the 2017 debut of the Lou collection – storage units, tables and coffee tables – the Fil Noir armchair and the Noor coffee table.
The next year, his partnership with Minotti evolved with two new designs, the Granville seating system and the Dan table, and in 2019 he created the Daniels seating system and the Amber coffee tables-low units.
In 2020, the French designer revisited the Lou storage units for the living, dining and night areas giving their look, materials, colour palette and structural details a makeover.
