The Herbarium is a collection of furniture inspired by the endemic nature of La Réunion Island to promote local crafts and explore creole identity.
Romain Laval and Pauline Esparon got fascinated by the botanical richness of the island. They made a series of samples inspired by the nature, exploring its shapes, colors, textures, structures. By making collages and by using the traditional technic of the local crafts, they created a new formal language -the herbarium-, translated in a lamp and an armchair.
