AuchKatzStudio is a French design studio established in 2017 and composed of the visual artist Elsa Belbacha-Lardy and the space and product designer Thomas Thibout. Together, they work to combine art and design in favor of a functional art and a sculptural design inspired by minerals.
In a world subject to globalization and snapshot, their empirical work fights against a large scale serial design. They work to sublimate the roughness and instability of their materials so as to achieve an experimental design where materials dominate and bring together the solid and the fragility.
First of all, their designer approach is that of a sculptor: they cut their block of polystyrene as one might cut a stone. They let themselves be guided by the spontaneity of their gestures, and the design they have in mind is not the final product, but rather its starting point. Their work process is based on the colors of material and its capacity to capture the movement of light and the passing of time.
Techniques : Resin, fiber glass, pigments, varnish, styrofoam
Belgian design is traditionally connected with its territory, both in terms of the use of natural materials and their corresponding colour palette. In addition, the international design scene was overwhelmed by the completely white minimalistic interiors in the nineties and the Scandinavian design trend with lots of light coloured wood and soft tones during the past decade.
To conquer the monotonous globalised, Instagram-driven interior design trends and to bring some optimism in these rather dark times, the international and Belgian design scenes nowadays fully embrace a vibrant colour scheme. Moreover colours are not only fun, but they also affect both our emotions and physical wellbeing. Or as Le Corbusier said: “Colour is an element as necessary as water and fire.”
Faithful to the Belgian context, most designers work with natural materials, which they manually transform into perfectly imperfect, tactile eye-catchers. These qualities can be found in ceramics and textile, but also in pieces from reclaimed materials that had a previous life. By integrating these unique or small-scale production pieces from independent designer-makers in an interior, you’ll bring their personal quests together into the unique story of your home.
