About

Taher Chemirik’s first floor light sculpture, ‘Carnivore’, combines sculpted brass and a rhyolite foot with three large flowers or mouths made of rare Saxe Agates, lit from the inside. A very poetic piece and a narrative in itself, ‘Carnivore’ includes an amethyst dragonfly and a lapis bird. Taher Chemirik was named by Time one of the world’s most influential designers in 2007 for his jewelry signature designs using oversized links, drop-like petals, and ebony wood. Three of his pieces are included in the permanent collection of the Muse´e des Arts De´coratifs. 'In my jewelry, I use Fine stones, gold, and silver, but also wood, coral, and hard stones. I like to mix materials in my furniture as well, in particular ones that defy time and are in line with the tradition of the decorative arts – brass, wood, and hard stones’. A graduate of the E´cole Nationale Supe´rieure des Arts De´coratifs de Paris (ENSAD), jewelry designer Taher Chemirik has collaborated with some of the world’s most prestigious fashion labels, including Chloe´, Herme`s, Balenciaga, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, and Roger Vivier. With the "Interior Treasures" ("Bijoux d'Inte´rieur") furniture collection exclusively produced and sold by Galerie BSL, Chemirik reveals the entire extent of his talent, that identifies him as a poet and architect of the object. Each piece is unique, handmade in Paris in Fine and timeless materials, such as brass, copper and rare hard stones. His works have the beauty of a contemporary sculpture, dense as well as sensual, refined and dramatic. Their strong presence vouches for the panache of an artist who expresses himself in volume, in tune with the scale of jewelry as well as with pieces with larger dimensions.?? The ‘Carnivore’ floor light sculpture is a signed, unique piece. Taher Chemirik's 'Interior Treasures' ('Bijoux d'Inte´rieur') furniture has been repeatedly featured in the French and international press since its launch at Design Miami in 2012. Pricing does not include 20% French VAT applicable only in the EU.
