  • Description
    As a jeweller, Taher Chemirik’s personal approach applied to sculptural lighting fixtures and furniture places his work in a dimension of its own in contemporary creation. Work by the artist is included in the permanent collections of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and the Museum of Arts and Design in New York.

    Now living in Brittany, on the French Atlantic coast, Chemirik has expanded into ceramics. Unveiled at Design Miami in 2022, his ‘Lava’ collection explores new frontiers in the ability of objects to express life forms. Created entirely by hand, each work in white or light pink matte terracotta is unique and manifests itself as a sensual evocation of the beauty of nature. “Clay is the oldest and most malleable material there is. With it, creation is a story of imprint but also of embrace because it engages the whole body.” Some creations are made of bronze and are available in a limited edition.
    Born in 1955, Taher Chemirik is a graduate of the ENSAD, L’École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Paris. Since 1990, he has collaborated as a jeweler with some of the world’s most prestigious fashion labels, including Chloé, Balenciaga, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, and Roger Vivier. He was named one of the world’s most influential designers in 2007 by Time Magazine for his eponymous line of high-end jewelry which includes oversized links, drop-like petals, and ebony wood. Three of his jewelry pieces are included in the permanent collaboration of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs de Paris.
