French artist and creator of contemporary furniture, Stéphane Ducatteau, works mainly with metal foil and acid-treated steel and stainless steel. The furniture is for him the support for the development of a certain aesthetic. His approach to furniture is resolutely turned towards sculpture. The voluptuousness and the ergonomics of the curves that it shapes generate emotion and sensuality. The metal takes on an ebony appearance thanks to the patinas that Stéphane uses brilliantly. Each piece is uniquely made with the rigor and mastery of the craftsman.
Stéphane Ducatteau has an initial scientific training as an engineer and has followed several years of evening classes at the Fine Arts workshops of the city of Paris in drawing, painting, modeling, and glass work. After working as an engineer in an architecture office, Stéphane Ducatteau devoted a year of training to Ferronnerie d’Art. He wanted to make his own models by refusing to dissociate conception and realization of the object.
