Seen in our TRENDS Issue 88., Trend 12 is about the use of natural – and of course – environmentally friendly materials. Right up-to-date with the wood trend, Paris based artist Zoë’ Ouvrier’s use of wood highlights the spectacular, soul soothing natural world. An updated appreciation and big embrace of all things raw.

Shadows and light, rough and smooth, Zoë plays with contrasts and balance in nature to create exceptional objects.

Emphasising the magical quality of wood, Zoë’s hand engraved artworks highlight its natural nuances. Combining art, design and architecture, these hand engraved artworks are used as screens. By bringing an object belonging to the outdoor environment indoors, spaces are transformed.
