Behind the brand, ‘Emmane’ lies Emmanuelle Bernat , from the Aveyron. A highly creative and original young designer who has recently moved into the Loire region to create and experiment with new concepts in metal and porcelain. She studied applied arts in Aveyron (Rodez ) and in Paris.
Her furniture collection “Making Red Cabbage ” allowed her to participate at ‘Maison et Objet’ in 2010, as winner of the competition Young creators of Atelier d’Art de France . Followed by numerous appearances in various collective exhibitions in France , Egypt and Belgium. In June 2011, nine months after the end of her studies she created her own studio / shop in a small village in the Loire , St Jean St Maurice in the Cote Roannaise.
Emmane says: “I will remember my childhood landscapes where tillage was closely linked to that of steel . I was born in a region where the iron gave color to the earth, a powerful red that resurfaces each plowing. I grew up watching the farm work , where steel tools and earth are closely linked to give birth to crops. So I recreated this union in my room , through a combination of porcelain and steel. ”
” Between sculpture and objects , my creations are elements that fit into our interiors featuring in wall lights, screens , lighting, furniture, etc … My inspiration comes often from little simple daily details, that the we often forget to look closely: a red cabbage sliced become elements of modular steel furniture , nuts become decorative and poetic elements , … ”
Emmane also bends, cuts and welds metal in combination with porcelain to create imaginative decorative patterns , or humorous, whimsical narrative. Often featured in related objects for interior decoration such as lights or coffee tables.
Emmane creates and invents every day in a work of love, inspiration and creative dedication that never ends!
