Isabelle Stanislas

Ellipse Bench

$38,000.00

Description/

“Isabelle Stanislas’ ‘Ellipse’ Bench, that may also be used as a coffee table, is based on the masterful conjugation of three materials: white Estremoz marble, black Marquina marble, and bronze-colored patinated brass. Each marble is imagined both individually and in association with the striking choice of a striped motif. A quasi kinetic visual game materialises in the extremely powerful yet contained graphic composition created by the combination of the black and white lines of the marble and the curved patinated brass elements. A peaceful radicality is achieved, composition and volume forming a perfect equilibrium.

Isabelle Stanislas’ ‘Ellipse’ collection incarnates her ‘“artistic philosophy of structure”, in other words her desire to create a design that aims at a form of quintessence. ‘Ellipse’ affirms itself with power and personality through simple geometric shapes and a minimalist palette of colors and materials. The works are exclusively produced for Galerie BSL by prestigious French Ateliers Saint-Jacques, also producers of Rodin’s bronze sculptures, in a limited edition of 8 pieces + 4 artist proofs.”


Isabelle Stanislas

designer

Isabelle Stanislas was born in France in 1970. She is a graduate in architecture of l’Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Influenced by the work of Tadao Ando, Renzo Piano and Louis Khan, Isabelle Stanislas has developed her “artistic philosophy of structure” over many successful projects. Through manipulating scale, volume and space with inserts of monolithic blocks, Stanislas looks to pacify the area she is working on, whilst always respecting its unique identity. A logical progression from her architectural endeavors, her furniture design expresses her desire to aim at a form of quintessence through simple geometric shapes and a minimalist palette of colors and materials. In Isabelle’s words: “To invent is not to question everything. If we respect heritage, if we understand its codes and values, then we can marry it with modernity without denaturing it. After all, the past, the present and the future have always been the three sides of the same scalene.” In 2018, Isabelle Stanislas was chosen by Le Mobilier National (French national authority regarding state furniture since the 17th century) to renovate the 1,000 square meter formal reception rooms of le Palais de l’Elysée (French Presidential Palace) and bring them into the 21st century. Her monograph was published at Rizzoli’s New York in 2021.
