Adroit Sculpted Console Shelf, Sculpted by Frederic Saulou



Frederic Saulou, adroit sculpted console shelf Materials: Tre´laze´ black slate, gray smoked glass. Dimensions: 90 x 157 x 35 cm. Edition of 8. Signed and numbered. "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.
