"Decomplexe" Stone Side Table Sculpted by Frederic Saulou



"Décomplexé" stone side table sculpted by Frederic Saulou. Materials: Magny ornamental stone. Dimensions: D 38 x H 50 cm, approximately 70 kg. "While wandering in the streets I have been observing buildings construction toward the sky and found myself eagerly interested in slate material and ornamental stones. I am wondering about post-Industrial heritage of local mineral material and widen the range of possibilities in creating functional objects for the house and in questioning history, material and its usual impact between art and design. Thus, I want to distort, democratize and increase the value of this material as a future heritage and above all as a food for thought. To bring traditional and Industrial know-how face to face for creative purposes, to reinterpret the material in formal and conceptual ways so as to provide it a new understanding." Frederic Saulou's sculpted design artworks introduce a series of work coming from researches and partnerships between local ateliers and designer, and implemented to another scale: That of the object and contemporary creation. Frédéric Saulou is a proeminent French contemporary designer. Born in 1989, Frédéric Saulou, lives and works in Rennes, in France. Graduated in space and environmental design at the Institut Supérieur des Arts Appliqués (LISAA) in 2011 and in object design at the Ecole Européenne Supérieure des Beaux Arts de Rennes (EESAB) in 2013, Frédéric will continue to perfect his experience within the Eric Gizard Associés agency and with the designer Frédéric Ruyant. In 2013, he founded the studio - Frédéric Saulou Design Studio - an independent and multidisciplinary design and consulting agency that sees design as a space for research and exchange that allows him to develop a sensitive approach to forms and materials. Experimentation and research take precedence over his work in order to think of new materials and new uses. This accompanies his daily approach so that each project is conceived as a sculpture in its own right, between simplicity and technicality. His approach guides him towards a global approach but also unique in his creations, thus creating particular interactions between the user and the object, between industrial craftsmanship. Today Frédéric works on various projects, from objects to space, in series or limited editions and collaborates with prestigious institutions and brands such as the publishing houses Ligne Roset, Drugeot Manufacture, Brossier Saderne, Vista Alegre, Esprit Porcelaine Limoges etc.

About the Maker

Galerie Philia Furniture

Galerie Philia is an international contemporary sculptural design and art gallery representing emerging and established designers and artists. The gallery is the brainchild of two brothers who share a lifetime passion for art, literature and philosophy. Their distinct academic background sets them apart from their peers, as it sees them following a rhizomatic and transcultural approach in the way they select works. This involves combining elements from multiple cultures in what becomes a network of harmoniously interconnected roots, ultimately revealing the beauty of each unique creation. The gallery’s non-hierarchical curation sits apart from the ephemerality of trends and focuses instead on the true aesthetic quality of the piece – alluring and timeless. Unlike others, Galerie Philia does not focus on a single style – whether minimalist, organic or raw – but rather embraces heterogeneity. The Galerie Philia takes pride in discovering new talents, providing them with multiple international platforms to showcase their latest creations. As well as propelling the newest generation of 21st century collectible design, Galerie Philia also works with internationally known design artists. Galerie Philia has a strong international presence, with galleries in Geneva, New York and Singapore. In addition to their permanent spaces, the gallery organizes temporary group exhibitions and artists residencies in first-class locations around the world.
