Pauline Esparon plays with the notion of «rawness», a form of archaism, a primary state of materials before their standardization by industry. Forms from the vegetal, the animal or the mineral worlds become playful and can be intertwined. Her works always start with the investigation of materials, and slide from an instinctive research to a definite shape. Objects are plural, to constitute a collection, an ensemble, an atmosphere.
Born in Paris in 1927, made his début in the 50’s, known for his designs and installations (TV, Thonet, Bertrand Faure, Disderot, Artifort), he brought modernity to the Elysée Palace for President Pompidou in 1971. He designed all the furniture for the official office of François Mitterrand, and renovated the dining room for Jacques Chirac. At the same time, he founded ADSA with two associates, working on industrial projects (Calor, Allibert, Stamp) and brand image (Air France) as well as fitting-out railway stations (Gare de Lyon, Gare de Versailles Rive Gauche). His pieces figure amongst the collections of numerous museums across the world, and various exhibitions have been dedicated to him in 2007/8. MOMA, New York has enlarged its collection of Paulin pieces.

With wheels practice , he discovered a new form of expression, powerful, connecting material, gesture, curves.
The inspirations are several, but the starting point is often the raw material.
He like what we can get through expertise and connections between the material and hand.
His creations are unique pieces or very limited editions, made by me in noble materials,
or ennobled by his knowledge, each object retains its uniqueness.
from New Zealand based in London since 2009, Phil is interested in methods of making which endow his object with visual clues about how they were made.
All of his objects are handmade in my London Studio. Their complex forms and sharp lines mean it is sometimes assumed they have been made using CAD software, CNC maching, or 3D printing, but they on closer inspection reveal that they are all handmade. Often tiny imperfections, a result of the processes by which they are made, give this away.
