Robb Design Portfolio: Escape Artist

The most recent collaboration between French designer Jean Boggio and Francis Chen, founder of Chinese porcelain manufacturer Franz Collection (www.franzcollection.com), is a line of furniture, fabrics, and decorative accessories that Boggio likens to "escaping to a world halfway between Avatar and the paintings of Rousseau." All of the pieces, he says, are "fed by the fountains of Tim Burton’s imagination, forming a jungle re-created out of the fragments of my dreams." rel="nofollow" The objects incorporate porcelain depictions of rain forests, for which Boggio designs the casts. He uses layers of lacquer to achieve saturated colors. Prices for his designs—all customizable—range from about $1,000 for a small stool to $110,000 for a pair of bronze consoles covered in gold leaf; the pictured set of four chairs is $7,300, while the folding screen is roughly $37,570. Examples of Boggio’s work are on display now through November 11 at New York’s Bergdorf Goodman.
