Living in this architecture is a singular experience: its narrow viewpoints on the lake and a single panoramic view over the horizon. This majestic point of view, stolen from the floor, in the corridor, appeals to me. Did the architect consider that this spectacular view would be quite distracting? This context is reminiscent of Villa Kujoyama; the workshops turn their backs on a breathtaking view of Kyoto.
The elegant and raw interior, the naturally subdued light, the woodwork is conducive to concentration. The reward for this calm is a stroll around the island: the tranquility of the wild animals, the medieval and Roman remains, the mist that wraps this island in mystery.
In the middle of this unique experience, an unexpected visit and the traveller’s need for an elegant bag to take his shopping home gave a magnificent pretext to imagine and produce a first seamless bag .
Bags then furniture, different fields with a constant demand linked to a discipline redefined by tools and the singular modality of seamless manufacturing have given Archipel its name.
