An enigmatic box. In the intention of Jean Nouvel, it is also a reminder of those games that are impossible to play, and the real “false drawers” in everyone’s life. Chess, a game of the goose, French draughts, backgammon. An imposing presence, many beguiling details: real compartments and deceptive doors, cavities and game boards, pieces made from polished solid wood, a dice-shaker with soft rounded angles. Everywhere we see the distinctive sign of the inlay work, with the chromatic contrasts of the wood varieties. A luxurious games box that will only reveal the rules of the game one step at a time.
