Sketchbook, pencil and wood: that's all Eloi Schultz needs to create furniture pieces that are full of sensitivity and delicacy. Constantly inspired by traditional craftsmanship, designer Éloi Schultz creates creations at the border between art and design, between everyday furniture and sculptural pieces.
Trained as an architect and cabinet maker in Strasbourg and then in Paris, he has kept from his architectural studies a mastery of construction and his cabinet making CAP with the craftsman Antonis Cardew, an innate sense for the material.
Wood is of central importance in his work, as a backdrop between different skills, cultures and eras. The look, feel, smell and sensuality of wood inspire him daily. No matter where he is, he carries his notebook to note, draw, and sketch forms that touch him. Once a shape comes back often, he makes an object out of it.
His species are multiple but local. Among them: fruit trees such as apple, pear, cherry, walnut or chestnut. Soft and homogeneous enough to be sculpted and worked with a plane, chisel or gouge. The shapes he carves are simple and strong, inspired by ancient African objects, vernacular ornamentation in the style of Brancusi... He prefers to choose natural and little transformed materials in his work, which he shapes with the least amount of gesture possible. A sensitive expression in full precision and clarity.
