Frondesco” is a colourful and eye-catching canopy created by Statue, a French studio composed by interior architect and scenographer  Louise de Saint-Angel and Romain Guillet.

In Latin, “Frondesco” means covered with leaves, which in effect gives the idea behind their creation. This woven textile is hung to the wall to create a cosy private sub-space in the room, giving the ambience a colourful 3D decoration as well as providing acoustic insulation.

When not needed, it can easily be folded flat against the wall thanks to its wooden bracket arm that swings horizontally.
