Recognized by many gallery, Chantal Saccomanno and Olivier Dayot are a couple of artists from Marseille with an unclassifiable style. Their designs (tables, beds) combine the functional to art. They may look simple but this pieces been having lot’s of attention from wealthy clients.
The couple live an artistic connection. For over 20 years, they worked together in their workshop in Marseille. Specialized journals (such as Art Workshop) ranked them as contemporary artist, also being featured by more mainstream magazines like Le Point. Some of their works are visible in Seltiel Aix en Provence gallery, but they also exhibit in New York, Kiev or Switzerland.
The shapes are clean and well designed. On wood, white lacquer sketch a second skin. Pure color, enhanced by tattoos in black ink. The chairs stand on tiptoes carved with amazing accuracy. Its impossible not to like their work.
