Argo is a crib made of fine walnut and copper, carefully combined to shield an infant from damaging electromagnetic waves. Named after the mythical vessel that protected Jason and the Argonauts, it gently cradles, shields and reassures. Argo is the product of close collaboration between Ludwig & Dominique’s master cabinet makers and Noir Vif’s designers. Through its design and the new techniques it explores, it opens up new horizons for contemporary cabinet making.
