With a playful and inviting company name which attracts attention, ibride are a trio of French design visionaries and business experts who have created a range of unique and quirky pieces displayed in our collection at Naken Interiors. Ibride, a play on word of the French word meaning ‘hybrid’ epitomises what this company does as their pieces question the way in which we see things and the relationship between furniture and its users. The company has allowed the lead designer to think freely and create true example of statement furniture for the modern home.
It was in 1996 that ibride came into being, when twenty-four year old Carine Jannin combined her business acumen with the exceptional visionary talents of both graphic and regular designers, Rachel and Benoît Convers. The trio together have forged ahead in the interior design world and have created internationally renowned designs which could only be associated with ibride.
More than simply creating furniture, ibride seek to change our perceptions and thinking about it, with a real dedication to bestowing a human, real presence to their pieces. The aesthetic qualities of their furniture cannot be questioned but beyond this many of their pieces provoke thought, discussion and much more, drawing in more and more appeal and intrigue.
Ibride has achieved something exceptional in the interior design world, recognisable pieces that are intrinsically ibride in design. The core elements which combine their pieces together and are hallmarks of their style are the animalistic nature of the pieces, their de-structured simple shape style and the graphical stamp which makes them almost museum like in their construction and appearance.
With a commitment to using both French materials and those sourced from their travels worldwide, many of ibride’s pieces are impressive in more ways than one. They also seek to combine a number of functions in a single piece, to demonstrate the fluidity of purpose in each object in our homes.
Ornate animal themes are present throughout the ibride collection, with many pieces have a magical, whimsical feel. Pieces such as a simple chest of drawers taken on the shape of a Doe, with hooves and other elements so it becomes much more than just storage and in fact a piece which automatically draws in the eye. This is true of the whole collection from the Cirrus Cloud Shelf to the Sultan Dog Stool. We have pieces in our range across many different categories from chairs to storage to bookcases. There is a fairy tale feel about their Hidden range of chairs, which cleverly utilise unusual lines and angles to create real whimsy and originality in each piece.
Each piece in the ibride collection is an example of precision engineering and exacting design to result in exceptionally eye-catching and original furniture unlike anything you may find in any other design house. In terms of unique design ibride’s vision and creativity is second to none yet many of their pieces work seamlessly together and could be positioned throughout your space in many different rooms creating cohesion throughout.
