    Limited, signed and numbered from an edition of 10.

    Curiosity and the common desire to develop a contemporary practice of their professions led them to enrich their projects by the diversification of techniques and the exchange of know-how. It is in this dynamic that they created sculptural objects, exploring the possible balances between their two universes and identities.

    Metal and concrete are very commonly used together. Adam and Robin have diverted these materials, to make them rediscover the aesthetic potential. They propose a re-reading by bringing a sensitive character, thus nourishing a dialogue with contemporary architecture.

    Consisting of a gueridon table and two mirrors, this series is based on contrasts that have been refined by choices of materials, surface conditions and volume equilibrium. The resulting objects establish an exchange between the crude, the random and the successful, the mastered. From these two aesthetics that oppose and complement each other, they create a language that recalls architecture and evokes the transformation of matter. This collection has been named "Binary" in reference to the combination of the two universes, techniques and materials that compose it.

    The Gueridon
    It seems fixed on the ground by a mineral mass, complex and animated. It extends, rises, and appears to emerge from the surface where it takes place. This ascension is extended by straight and vertical lines, which emerge from the mineral and break with the random shapes of the base. Affirmed by the voluminous base, their finesse reinforces the impression of elevation of the plateau which overhangs the whole. The presence of naturalness that emanates from the concrete forms is put in tension with the geometrical rigor of the metallic elements. Frank and mastered, they evoke an architectural rigor. In opposition, the mineral part inspires a raw material, with the tormented evolution. The rugged reliefs and the accumulation of strata reflect a long transformation, while the taut lines and the flat surfaces reveal an immutable state.

    With all these contrasts, the pedestal table integrates with contemporary architecture, while affirming its unique presence. Furniture and sculpture, he animates the space that welcomes him and constitutes an unusual pedestal for what he supports.

    Adam Ruiz
    With a background in Product design and his enthusiasm for metal, a simple but demanding material, Adam studied metal arts and crafts at the ENSAAMA Olivier de Serres. Thanks to these skills, he expresses his passion for design and makes by hand every objects he presents, from the original idea to the fabrication.

    His items reflect his strong attachment to hand work and craftsmanship, which is illustrated by his constant willingness to establish a dialogue between the fabrication process, and a minimal and contemporary aestheticism.
    You’ll find his hallmark, the three letters ARZ, minted on each of his pieces.

    Robin Hervé
    Following a course oriented towards the image and the drawing, Robin initiates craft techniques of lime during his diploma of
    fresco-mosaic crafts at ENSAAMA. A training complementary allows it to enrich these skills by others
    techniques of traditional and contemporary decor. It opens then at the work of the volume through the concrete sculpture.
    Through surface coatings, sculptures and decorative objects, he is conducting research on the balance between natural and artificial within the habitat.
    The aesthetics he creates are inspired by the observation of "natural" phenomena. They mention in particular
    the movements of matter, raw or shaped, and the impact of time on this one.
    Alternating workshop and on-site work, Robin now designs contemporary architectural decor elements. These coatings and
    volume creations combine lime plaster, fresco painting and decorative masonry in concrete. He also collaborates with
    other craftsmen, for the realization of architectural decorations and painted decorations.
