Vincent Roy, a French designer and 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 ancestral knowledge.

Specializes 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, Vincent evolved from the reproduction of that historical style into his own creation of truly modern furniture that relies on beautiful materials and traditional hand-crafted details for its aesthetic value.
