This piece, L'Orchidée, pulls influence from La Marorelle's desk of the same name displayed in the Musee d' Orsay in Paris, France. Marc Fish, like Marorelle at the time, uses some groundbreaking techniques in this table, utilising design, research, and experimentation. Its design features meticulous attention to detail and refinement – not least the seamless tambour roll top.
The tambour roll top appears to be a solid piece of wood, however, it is veneered canvas layered upon strips of wood. A technique like this has never been used before and the results are quite astonishing. Marc believes that it is only through looking deeply into nature and the natural environment that design can reach its full potential. Design should be stimulating, excite the senses, be an expression of the designer's beliefs, and demonstrate their deep understanding of the materials they use.
