Where are you from?
I’m from the mind and world of Jacques Jarrige, based in Paris, France.
Who in the family do you most resemble?
The Meanders family is a tight-knit group; my organic and intricately carved nature can be seen in all of my siblings, including a table, cabinet, stools, floor lamps and mobiles.
Aside from sugar and spice and everything nice, what are you made of?
Made from MDF and topped with a hand-applied lacquer, I represent an inspired combination of modest material and refined finish. My meandering lines were discovered by Jarrige as he used a handsaw to cut my panels. They bring me to life, like the perpetual movement of a river.
What are your biggest turn-ons?
Having the light, the eye or a hand pass through me. I am porous, an open book.
What are your biggest turn-offs?
Folding under pressure. I pride myself in staying open to all the world’s experiences.
If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only have three things, what would they be?
I wouldn’t need to bring anything, quite frankly. I would enjoy seeing whatever passes through me, and since we are a bunch of panels connected together, we would never feel lonely.
Describe the secret to your success.
I shield my companions from the wind, but not quite.
