What Please CSA?

As an interior designer, I am particularly curious to discover the different moods created by the galleries on their stands with each new edition. It is also a place where I learn a lot and, as I am not a specialist, I usually make myself small to listen to the experts. As a juror, I operate on instinct; I carry a sentimental look professional on objects.  

What design time do you prefer?

I can not escape the current vogue 1950 They have an identity, unlike the years 2000- 2010, which do not exist for the moment in terms of style and which one does not know what he will remain in twenty years.  

A favorite in a previous edition?

Fragile Future of Gordijn and Nauta, the Carpenters Workshop Gallery, wall light sculptures composed of egrets informed dandelions by LEDs in a very geometric metal cage. I love this air and poetic work, precision and finesse of the construction.

What Please CSA?

I love the interaction with those involved and especially observe all these things through the eyes of other members of the jury. It is a place where people invest and strive to create a search with rare quality. For different prizes for galleries, I vote according to my tastes, which are quite staggered ... and not always in sync with the end result!  

What design time do you prefer?

I am more sensitive to the quality of the object at the time. I can appreciate a piece of primitive art as silverware Art Deco or chair stuffed Campana brothers.  

A favorite in a previous edition?

A lamp saucer Lionel Lebovici to Jacques Lacoste gallery with Plexiglas discs with chrome ball in the center, which inspired my Astral ring, a pearl surrounded with a diamond ring that seems to float around.

I also like the PAD London, which has a concentrate of the best galleries in a small public garden where the tent is mounted around the trees.  

What design time do you prefer?

More than time, I search a certain refinement, so I am easy to Scandinavian furniture or pieces signed Charlotte Perriand, I like the effective simplicity.  

A favorite in a previous edition?
