EMMANUELLE SIMON

ES

Born France, 1988

A French-Israeli architect and designer, Simon composes immaculately curated, resolutely modernist pieces that reflect her heightened sense of refinement, keen eye for detail, and passion for craftsmanship. Drawing on Art Deco style and Wabi-Sabi philosophy, she exposes the raw beauty of materials with her precise, sophisticated, and simple designs. With a singularly detail-oriented aesthetic, Simon uses space and light to mold volumes and highlight textures with a poetic economy of design

A graduate of École Camondo, Simon worked with Pierre Yovanovitch before founding her own studio in 2017, winning the Prix Special du Public at Design Parade that same year. In 2019, she was named as one of the “100 Designers of the Year” by Architectural Digest

Raku Yaki Side Table

Honoring the Wabi-Sabi aesthetic tradition that finds beauty in imperfection and impermanence, Emmanuelle Simon’s Raku Yaki collection brings a serene contemporary sensibility to the ancient Japanese ceramic technique of Raku. Dating back over four hundred years, the unusual Raku process subjects ceramic to extreme stress with high heat and rapid cooling to create dramatic and singular surface variations of the glaze

The Raku Yaki Side Table highlights the beauty of this ancient ceramic craft, deploying it to create an ultra-contemporary, Art Deco-inspired collectible piece. Eleven Raku treated cylinders, organic-feeling in their gently rounded shape, surround a Lava Stone top to suggest a serene reflecting pool for the most sophisticated of spaces. Lava Stone, as its name suggests, is solidified molten lava, and is noted for its grounding, healing, and calming properties 

The elegantly simple form invites us to experience the raw beauty and emotional resonance of these two majestic materials. The contrast of light, delicate, crackled ceramic and dark, solid, smooth lava stone invites meditation on fragility, strength, the miracles of human achievement and the natural world alike. This graceful side table is a singularly grounding and intimate addition to any home
