Isabelle Stanislas’ life is a pathway covered with geometry. Forms close to the scalene triangle with its three uneven sides. This geometrical mix is omnipresent in everything she does and is. It is in her combined Moroccan, French and Israeli roots, in her work that merges interior decoration, architecture and furniture design, and in her inspiration filled with a perpetual balance between a respect for history, the boldness of modernity and her desire to unite all of these. In April, we will be able to admire her exquisite designs in PAD Paris 2019 on Galerie BSL‘s showcase.
In Isabelle’s own words: “To invent is not to question everything. It means using the existing light and space and projecting them into the present. Heritage is not condemned to a life behind a window of the past. If we respect heritage, if we understand its codes and values, then we can marry it with modernity without denaturing it. After all, the past, the present and the future have always been the three sides of the same scalene”.
After graduating from l’Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Paris with a diploma in architecture, Isabelle Stanislas was rapidly distinguished for her work on several artistic projects, displaying an open attitude to diverse forms of creative expression. In 2003, her work for the Zadig & Voltaire boutiques demonstrated her now trademark artistic vision, founded on the rationalization of space, the respect for heritage and the use of raw colors. This is a philosophy that she continues to develop.
Influenced by the work of Tadao Ando, Renzo Piano and Louis Khan, Isabelle Stanislas built her “artistic philosophy of structure” over many successful projects. Through manipulating scale, volume and space with inserts of monolithic blocks, Stanislas looks to soothe the area she is working on, while respecting its unique identity.
