YANN DESSAUVAGES °JUNE 1989 BORN IN BRUSSELS IS A BELGIAN AUTODIDACT ARTIST-DESIGNER. AS THE CHILD OF A TEACHER AND A METALWORKER,

 

HE GREW UP IN A HOUSE WITH A WORKSHOP, WHERE HE CREATED HIS FIRST METAL SCULPTURES AT THE AGE OF 16. HE STARTED HIS PROFESSIONAL LIFE WORKING IN A SECOND-HAND SHOP, WHERE THE SCULPTURAL FURNITURE OF DESIGNERS LIKE ARMAND JONCKERS AND ADO CHALE STRUCK HIM.

 

THEIR CAPACITY TO TRANSFORM BRASS, COPPER AND SEMI-PRECIOUS STONES INTO GLAMOUROUS, SOPHISTICATED OBJECTS INSPIRED YANN TO QUIT HIS JOB AND ELABORATE HIS SKILLS AS A SMITH. AFTER HIS FIRST FURNITURE EXPERIMENTS IN RECYCLED TIN, HE REFINED HIS STYLE BY USING BRASS AND GEMSTONES. WITHOUT ANY BACKGROUND IN ART OR DESIGN, YANN DESSAUVAGES CREATES HIS FURNITURE BY INTUITIVELY SCULPTING THE MATERIALS AVAILABLE IN HIS WORKSHOP.

 

THE REFERENCES TO ORGANIC, PLANETARY OR GEOLOGICAL FORMS COME FROM HIS UNBIASED IMAGINATION. MORE THAN A COLLECTION OF TABLES, HE CREATES A COHERENT OEUVRE THAT MIXES FUNCTIONALITY AND ART, OBJECT AND SUBJECT, TRADITION AND INNOVATION.
