Atelier Polyhedre is a French ceramic studio that has a lot of range but a clear interest in extremely angular and mathematical forms. Given their name, perhaps it’s not surprising that they find inventive ways of exploring geometry through vases, pitchers, and cornices. Their Zag is a literal zig zag built as a pitcher. Vessels called Stomachs “swallow” a combination of forms, angles and curves, and so resemble lengths of intestine.
The studio was founded in 2004 by Baptiste Ymonet and Vincent Jousseaume. Together, the duo creates tableware and decorative pieces both as limited editions and one-offs. In 2013, Atelier Polyhedre exhibited work at 100% Design, London and Maison & Objet, Paris, which are only two of their many recent projects.
