Product Description

Laisse Béton, the inaugural Atelier d’Amis collection, was designed by French New Yorkers Sébastien Léon and Valérie Pasquiou after observing the never-ending turmoil of New York City’s streets, constantly torn apart by constructions sites. “There is a certain beauty and unity in the architectural skeleton of construction,” observes Sébastien Léon ” which offers a stacked X-ray of structural elements, floor after floor.” For Valérie Pasquiou, “concrete is the raw material of New York by excellence, which I felt should be glorified by bringing it to the world of fine furniture”.

The design duo chose to reinterpret rebars into legs, grids into tables, pinion elevators into armoires and cleverly infused the vocabulary of construction throughout their collection. Material-wise, Atelier d’Amis selected ultra-thin and resistant concrete-finish ceramic plates with brass plated tubular steel, marrying the worlds of industrial, contemporary and high-end furniture.

Atelier d'Amis

Rooted in the spirit of collaboration, Atelier d’Amis strives to create pieces and spaces that go beyond luxury furniture and 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. 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.
