He is known for his objects with hybrid functions and joyful shapes. Meet Monsieur ELIE, the lovable grand elephant that challenges stereotypes as it gleams in its anthropomorphous glory. A mix of humor, luxury and utility, ELIE goes beyond furniture - a magical, sculptural object, almost life like, that makes you smile every time you glance at them. ELIE is a showstopper with its brass head and smart uniform. It opens up as a fantastic sculptural cabinet. It is meticulously crafted by fine craftsman in India using cast brass in a painstakingly intricate inlay technique. It is exclusively designed for Scarlet Splendour by Matteo Cibic and this burgundy color is exclusive to Design Miami/.
