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 Coffee 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 Coffee Table highlights the beauty of this ancient ceramic craft, deploying it to create an ultra-contemporary, Art Deco-inspired collectible piece. A dramatic ring of Lava Stone or Travertine surrounds an organic-feeling grouping of Raku treated ceramic cylinders. Their distinctive crackled finish and ethereal quality stand in stunning juxtaposition to the solid and earthy stone to create an uncanny floating effect 

The materials of the stone ring tell their own distinctive stories.  Lava Stone, as its name suggests, is solidified molten lava and is noted for its grounding, healing, and calming properties. Travertine, meanwhile is an opulent limestone of unusual warmth and strength that was a favorite of Ancient Romans and modernist architects alike

The elegantly simple form invites us to experience the raw beauty and emotional resonance of these majestic materials. The contrast of light, delicate ceramic and solid, smooth stone invites meditation on balance, harmony, fragility, and strength. This monumental coffee table is striking yet serene centerpiece for elevated living spaces
