Mono Editions launches cork and pulp furniture
Launched in a pop-up (March 23-27, 2022) in Paris, the Mono Edition presents an architect’s modular design made from a single sustainable material.
Former gallerist Laetitia Ventura has launched a new brand, Mono Editions, with the goal of “discovering new talent and capturing the spirit of the times.” Launched in Paris in collaboration with a pop-up shop (136, rue Saint-Honoré, March 23-27, 2022) and two first collaborations, Mono Editions are made from a single material defined by a sustainable approach. The focus is on the work that was done.
Gramme armchair 12.8
The first two collections feature works made of cork and pulp and paper, featuring a minimalist modular form in a single material. The brand’s manifesto outlines its ambition to “limit the production chain to create design objects that are accessible and sustainable, first and foremost.” The furniture is durable, both from a manufacturing and aesthetic point of view, and is imagined to celebrate materials and craftsmanship.

Made from pulp paper, the Papierre collection by design studio Gramme’s Romain Freychet and Antoine Prax “against gravity” thanks to the appearance of the white stones and the lightness of the paper. Geometrically grooved monoliths, which look like carved rocks, are inspired by classical architecture, and their simple shapes are lamps, chairs and two tables. Their work describes the architect and evokes the aura of the totem: spiritual aesthetic boundaries. Architecture is combined with sculpture.
Cork table by William Ventura
Another approach was chosen by architect William Ventura. The Liege collection consists of modular furniture (console, dining table, bookshelf) made of dark cork. According to the architect, the work combines the spontaneity of art with the durability of architecture. The modular nature of the Liege collection is extended by the possibility of disassembling each piece so that it can evolve to fit inside the space, for example by changing the height of the legs of a table or console, or adding it to a bookshelf. Will be done. §
