At WoodnDesign we believe that an iconic design is a combination of simplicity, aesthetics and functionality brought to life through skillful work with the highest quality materials. We take pride inusing the finest timber from antique beams, which provides the best seasoning and quality precious wood aged from 80 to 200 years. Along with using the best timber, our creation is hand made with traditional ancestral joinery, hand sanded and hand polished. The artisanal creations expresses our passion for modern and minimalist design.
Founder / Designer
Vincent Roy, a French designer and a cabinet- maker, decided to settle down in Pondicherry after ten years of carpentry experience in France, Australia, Cambodia and India. Previously specialising in repairing French antique furniture, Roy had the chance to observe how the wood and the joinery react with time, preserving the knowledge from past generations. Gaining that deep understanding has given him the ability to design artistic as well as functional pieces applying best practice of ancestral knowledge. Passionate about the original designs of Scandinavian furniture created during 1920s-1970s by a circle of craftsmen, architects and designers combining works of art with functional furnishings for everyday life.
