Who we are. Rooted in the spirit of collaboration, Atelier d’Amis strives to create pieces & spaces that go beyond luxury furniture & interiors to become pieces of conversation. Their vision flourished among three friends: furniture entrepreneur Philippe Boccara, artist and designer Sébastien Léon, and interior architect Valérie Pasquiou. While they are based in New York and Los Angeles, the fabrication of their collections takes place in the hands of expert craftsmen in Italy.
Signature Style. A sculptural approach to furniture-making, inspired by the encounter of French and American aesthetics. Exceptional Italian craftsmanship, innovative materials, and progressive manufacturing processes make Atelier d’Amis a unique player in the world of fine contemporary furniture.
They love. New York’s chaos, California’s vastness and the French affinity for fantasy. Contemporary art galleries and craftsmen’s workshops. And lines. They love lines.
Showstoppers. Sebastien’s sound sculptures for the Palais de Tokyo and the Plaza Athénée in Paris. His 35-story sound sculpture running through the pipes of a building in Turkey that collects sound from different floors and reorganizes them into a multichannel symphony. His experiential installations for Audemars Piguet at the Park Avenue Armory in New York and at the abandoned Tanjong Pagar train station in Singapore… Valerie’s new multi-faceted headquarters for Swarovski North America. Her renovation of a Haussmannian duplex on the Champs de Mars in Paris. Her contemporary take on the interior of a New York Beaux Arts tower, and her interior design of a vast townhouse in Basel.
What’s up. Their upcoming line of tubular lighting, and a collection inspired by the anatomy of insects, scheduled for Spring 2017.
