The love of wickerwork...
‘’Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.’’
I’ll be honest, I have a real love of the organic flow and curves found in Art Nouveau and this will by the makers, architects, artists and designers to achieve a synthesis of art and craft, creating a Gesamtkunstwerk ‘’total work of art”. It was a movement that placed great focus on the revival and elevation of craftsmanship and reflecting the utility of the pieces created.Objects like this rattan armchair from Atelier vime - a studio with a wonderful dedication to the long held tradition of wickerwork in Vallabrègues, the county of the Gard, Provence. Where hand-made, rich tradition and ecological considerations unite.The company creates a rich collection of woven rattan furniture and accessories, while also restoring and reselling vintage rattan pieces.
