Following his degree in interior architecture and multiple professional experiences in Beirut and Paris, Frederic Imbert founded his agency in 2018.
Combining both design and architecture, the creator tends to reveal in each of his projects a dialogue between the interior and the exterior. Marble, stone, wood… Frédéric Imbert comes to play with different natural and recycled materials creating unique and asymmetrical furniture pieces.
“Nature inspires me a lot in my projects. I work with very few tools and with materials that are quite malleable. When I carve my wood furniture, I try to get in touch with the material and follow its natural movement.” The designer’s furniture gives the impression that only nature is in control of his sculptures.
Through the organic forms of his furniture, the designer alternates between a smooth and abrupt feel. In his 100-square-meter studio in Bernay, Normandy, Imbert ponders the production of his many projects, ranging from the creation of a piece of furniture for a luxury boutique to the interior of a private home. “Most of the time, I work alone. I follow different creative processes depending on the orders. In my workshop, I make everything that I have 100% control over, including my custom carved wood furniture for my clients.”
