According to the philosophy of French architect and designer based in Japan, Emmanuelle Moureaux
: "I use colors as three- dimensional elements, like layers, in order to create spaces, not as a finishing touch applied to surfaces
", also been reflected in Mille-Feuille
, the chest of drawers designed to Schönbuch
Eye-catcher, sculpture, chest of drawers, favourite interior furnishing: MILLEFEUILLE

, who lives in Tokyo, it has been hand-crafted by Schönbuch
in a series of complex work stages.
A design highlight that’s functionally effective inside: MILLE-FEUILLE
chests are available in 3 sizes, with 2, 3 or 4 drawers. They are built from MDF and painted in 8, 12 or 21 different colour shades. The purist “layer look” resembles oversize coloured sheets laid almost haphazardly one over the other. MILLE-FEUILLE is furniture that brings tidiness for all its variety and has a fascinating colour spectrum.
Emmanuelle Moureaux - Architect + Designer
Forming space with colour is how Emmanuelle Moureaux describes the creative core of her work. She studied architecture at Bordeaux University before she moved to Tokyo in 1996. The company she opened there in 2003 has been known as “emmanuelle moureaux architecture + design” since 2009. The culture and architecture of the country in which she lives and works are her major sources of inspiration. Emmanuelle Moureaux gained international recognition for her colourful “shikiri”
concept. This invented name, translated literally, means “to divide space using colours”. She has undertaken projects in frontage design, interior furnishing and exhibition stand design. Since 2008 she has also taught product design at the Tohoku University of Art & Design.
