Art and design collectors, Johan Bouman and Pieter Franssens had a crazy idea after having elegantly renovated and beautiful designer pieces in the Château de la Resle, in the Burgundy countryside: to create their own label and their own publishing house. The old stones of the Château de la Resle already rubbed shoulders with modern design thanks to its aesthetic owners, Johan Bouman and Pieter Franssens. What could be more normal for these collectors of design and contemporary art than to embark on publishing? For this, they decided to invite their favorite Dutch designers so that they create new pieces exclusively for the label "Château de la Resle". Pieces inspired by the atmosphere of the castle.
On one side the Plante side table, on the other the Plante case, two creations by Jos Kranen and Johannes Gille Among these designers are Kranen and Gille. After meeting at the Dutch Design Academy in Eindhoven, they launched their design studio in the south of the Netherlands, Kranen / Gille. They tend to harmoniously combine craftsmanship and industrial forms, the table and the Plant case are good examples, as variations on the theme of the industrial revolution.
The Montigny serving table and the Saint Germain cutting boards by Roderick Vos As for Roderick Vos, a graduate of the Design Academy in Eindhoven, he spent a few years in Indonesia and in the north of the Netherlands before creating his design studio. He describes his aesthetic approach: "I feel closer to Platonic idealism than to the post-modern vision of the world than in our time.… I want to please you with beautifully useful pieces. Objects that breathe the aesthetic pleasure. Solid forms that are beautiful, good and true. "
Carolina Wilcke porcelain bottles Finally, there is Carolina Wilcke. This one has a goldsmith training. She uses the same approach to make objects, loving to use a number of materials, types of crafts and techniques. She created for the Château de la Resle a series of three porcelain bottles, Louise, Sylvie and Thierry, handcrafted by a workshop in Saint-Amand-en-Puisaye, a pottery village not far from the castle. These three bottles come as a new dimension to its installation Tafelgenoten - his end of study project, still life questioning the diversity of people around a dinner -, each bearing the name of friends often present for a dinner at the castle. www.chateaudelaresle.com
