In the 8th arrondissement of Paris, Annelise Michelson invites passers-by to discover a world full of curves through sculptures and pieces developed in collaboration with the “Esprit du Patrimoine Vivant” workshop in Vanves. She proposes a journey through femininity, curves, and the nervousness of taut lines as a poetic break in the frenzy of the French capital.
Over the years, this trained jeweler has developed her skills as a designer with the opening of her boutique-gallery. Between the pink carpet and the wall of mirrors reflecting the light, the sculpture in the center is light and airy with a twisted pattern alluding to the shapes of her creations.
In a spirit of recycling, Annelise Michelson has designed chairs based on existing furniture on which the craftspeople have applied plaster. A material that allows for flexibility in creation and the addition or removal of a layer, while maintaining a pure, mineral aspect and allowing a certain finesse to emerge. From this dialogue between the workshop and the designer, pure pieces with natural curves are born.
Today, the curves of the furniture resonate with her sensual creations surrounded by stone sculptures imagined during various trips and inspired by the surrounding environment, which allows one to feel the atmosphere and learn from the latest craftspeople.
