We wrote about Atelier Polyhedre way back in CFile’s infancy, so it’s about time to see what the French ceramic studio has been up to lately.

They recently completed an exhibition, Maisonner (April 25 – June 14), at La Chapelle des Calvairiennes. The individual pieces, according to TLmag were specially made for the show. The studio employed earthenware, wood and steel to create objects that explored different patterns of hexagons. The set created a “complete environment,” borrowing from a pattern seen often in the building in which it was showcased. Topping the series off was a wallpaper designed by the studio, which mimicked the other forms.
Atelier Polyhedre was founded in 2004 by Baptiste Ymonet and Vincent Jousseaume. In our original piece on the designers, we pointed out how they have a clear interest in exploring angular and mathematical forms. Visitors to our earlier post will note this thread through the studio’s experiments with angular vases, pitchers and jugs.
