Originally a jewelry designer for Yves Saint Laurent and Lacroix as well as a perfume bottle designer for Christian Dior, Parisian Hervé van der Straeten is now also renowned for his modern furniture and lighting designs.
Whatever his creations - consoles, mirrors, cabinets, lighting, perfume bottles or jewelry – "Van der Straeten constantly explores a graphic purity and makes radical choices in terms of movement, elegance and unconventional, unexpected expression".
His instantly recognizable designs are known for their often contrasting materials, bold form and elegant lines. "He's a renaissance man of design, lending his talents to interiors and furniture, handcrafted in his workshop just outside Paris" writes Booth Moore for the Los Angeles Times.
We are inspired by his contemporary, often provocative style. His finely crafted designs are sculptural, artistic expressions that will surely stand the test of time.
