Interventions by Eric Gizard, we retain above all an impression of elegance and harmony. He designs architectures to live, be they private residences, hotels starred, or luxury shops that you do not want to leave without knowing why. Until we find the detail. This audacious trace thanks to which we know without fail that it can only be about him, the element that will give him instead his own identity without betraying grace. This elegance of which we have just congratulated, makes it almost uncertain the reassuring balance that one seeks in each new discovery.
So beyond the general impression, we pay attention to these amazing footprints and refined, distilled both in the places he creates and in the objects he draws. Sometimes it’s the graphics of a floor or ceiling that introduces the shift in the visual field, sometimes it’s a glass cladding that was thought to be lacquer, or again, it is the deformed geometric pattern in the center of a crystal plate.
Eric Gizard likes to spare surprise without giving way to ostentation. It warms the contemporary contrasts unexpected contrasts, and organizes the light according to the shadows. For him, Tanizaki’s reader, they say as much as the silences in the conversations. When he takes on his role as a designer, he is found on the same thread, in a balance inspired by his French culture of decorative arts and its creative originality, unravelling draw the object that will testify to his taste for simple and fluid forms, obvious and however unpublished.
Passionate about photography and contemporary decorative arts, Eric Gizard pays attention particular to the effects produced by his own compositions: while proposing places perfectly reflecting their primary function, he knows how to make room for spontaneity of those who will come after his departure, without ever creating a vacuum or hindering movements of life. Visionary and talented director, it is by breaking the expected rhythms that he guides the desires of his customers.
