Portraits d’arts : la danseuse et le soldat de bois
Husband-and-wife team Chantal Saccomanno and Olivier Dayot combine forces to create furniture that looks, feels and breathes like art, but is fully functional. Eccentric and beautiful, their pieces evolve from moving back and forth between the couple for various processes: she draws, he sculpts, she embellishes, he finishes. Based in Marseille, their works are found all over the world in private rooms, hotels, exhibits and fairs. Their chairs, tables and beds are made with the highest levels of craftsmanship, using lacquer, wood, textiles, and ink.
