About

THE STUDIO


Krizalidstudio is a space of research and design, created by Emmanuel Gardin in 2008, with the leitmotiv of "metamorphosis".

After various collaborations in several fields such as ceramics for "Royal Boch" or "Serax", or the slow design with "Charles Kaisin", he also experimented other approaches: the set design for "Chine Collection," Architecture at office «Zest", the border between design and art with "Charles Kaisin".

What motivated the birth of his own studio is "being able to devote time to research and design modular objects for the home. I like to implement simple mechanical methods to distort and change the raw material into clever furnitures that can be use in different ways and meet the practical needs of everyday life".

Among the objects most emblematic and representative of his work, we found the collection RECTO VERSO or the light KINO, condensed of simplicity and sustainability.

Emmanuel Gardin's metamorphic vision induces creations with different uses or different appearances. "If an object can replace two other then it will be more suited to our needs and our over-consumption will slow significantly".
