Esteemed architect and discreet artist based in Paris, Michel Amar has designed and built some of the french capital’s elegant interiors and hotels particuliers with utmost confidentiality for over 25 years. In parallel of the private residences he designed, Amar’s work has received public recognition through hand-picked hospitality projects including the Hotel Elysees in Paris, Le Royal Hotel and Restaurant il Vino in the 7th arrondissement.
Shown for the first time in the United States at Les Ateliers Courbet, his ‘Objets d’Art’ collection includes elegant furniture, lighting and decorative pieces. Each is reflects the artist’s passion for the matter emphasized by impeccable and painstaking craftsmanship. The simplicity and sensuous silhouettes are hand-carved or cast in masculine, heavy-weight and textured materials, creating a cohesive and timeless collection.
Amar has worked closely with some of the highly regarded marble manufacturer and foundries of the french capital, including Les Marbreries de Seine and la Fonderie Chapon.
