After graduating from ENSAMAA Olivier de Serres with a degree in textile and object design, Léa Zéroil worked alongside renowned designers and architects, such as India Mahdavi and Laura Gonzalez. Over four years, the creator developed strong skills that led her, in 2020, to take flight by creating her own design studio. Nobilis, Sézanne, and Dior Maison are brands for which Léa now designs pieces close to her universe. Inspired by the work of Antti Lovag, a Hungarian “habitologist” architect specializing in Bubble Houses and organic architecture, and by the modernist movement in her creations, the designer has created Primo – first in Italian – a stool with curved and warm lines available in seven colors.
On the cushion supported by two curved, wooden blades, the fabric “Croisé Collobrières” by Pierre Frey is affixed. A textile piece that, according to the designer, is “loaded with history.”
With the help of thin layers of glossy lacquer, the wooden structure – made in Portugal – gives off a definite chromatic intensity and highlights the singular shapes of this piece of furniture.
“Primo was made possible because I had the opportunity to design the furniture for the Oh my cream spa on rue de Saintonge in Paris. The teams loved it. So this commission allowed me to go from 2D drawing to reality.”
Primo gives off a halo of light identical to the sun setting on warm Mediterranean beaches.
