In our view, Hélène makes the sort of furniture that Stanley Kubrick might have admired – a space age aesthetic of sculptural metal forms combined with bursts of wild colours and glittering surfaces.
For the past eighteen years, Hélène has created an extensive range of compelling works in her home-studio-laboratory on the outskirts of Paris. They are infused with her distinctive aesthetic, rooted in the use of familiar materials interpreted in unexpected ways. Admirers of these pieces include internationally renowned designers, such as Jacques Garcia, Jacques Grange and Peter Marino, who were among the first to detect the uniqueness of Hélène’s creations and to commission numerous and sometimes monumental works for their projects. In Garcia’s case, these include resin furniture for the Elsa Schiaparelli boutique in Paris, including an oversized flower-shaped table and swarms of butterflies frozen in flight along banisters and around mirrors.
