Paris-born skateboarder-turned-entrepreneur Pierre-André Senizergues, whose company developed skate shoes like Etnies, teamed up with interior designer Gil Le Bon de LaPointe, a fellow skater, to create the Skate Study House, an exhibit that pays homage to both the skateboard and modern design.

A play on Los Angeles' famed Case Study Houses project that tasked architects and designers with building and furnishing model homes, SSH recreates the furniture from the project bringing the dynamism and spontaneity necessary in skating into the world of interior design, its creators say.

We like the shelves and Eames-like chairs made from decks, which will be available for purchase along with the rest of the collection from Colette and their site (it's still under construction but goes live next week). Already creating a buzz on HighSnobiety, Apartment Therapy and elsewhere, it's worth checking out if you're in Paris next week.
