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 Mural Cabinet

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. This crackled finish serves as a stunning counterpoint to the voluptuous Art-Deco inspired form of the cabinet’s exterior

Polished mirror brass handles open the double doors to reveal a capacious interior with four rounded geometric shelves, also in glimmering mirror brass. Perfect as a floating bar cabinet or for small storage, this remarkable piece feels at once contemporary yet rich with history, sensual yet sacred, spartan yet utterly luxurious
