Marc Abelin


The son and grandson of great upholsterers, Abelin favours clean lines, perspectives and combining basic and precious materials: lacquer and gilding with stone, wood and iron. In March 2014 he launched a first collection, triggered by coming across a photograph taken by artist Liu Bolin and inspired by the shape of a gold ingot. This limited edition of 20 items (eight of each) in black and gold lacquer or gold leaf reflects the spirit of its designer: chic, glamorous and rock’n’roll.
