Deirdre Dyson is one of the exclusive brands selected by Rinck Paris for their curated collaboration At Home with a Connoisseur #chezunconnoiseur, a space filled with the best of contemporary art and design selected by Rinck in collaboration with tastemaker, and Deirdre Dyson French representative, Julia Van Hagen.
Having recently opened a showroom in nearby rue des saints-pères, Rinck selected two of Lady Dyson’s rug designs from this year’s LOOKING GLASS Collection – the bold and graphic SLIVERS and vibrant, organic TRANSPARENT, both hand knotted in Nepal in the finest Tibetan wool and Pure silk.
The curated space includes the latest addition to Rinck’s Félicité collection, a monumental bronze ceiling light, suspended above a table from the same collection. This is juxtaposed with a period 1940s sideboard, typical of a late Art Deco style that brought the house such success in the post-war period. Above the sideboard are a further two wall lights from the Félicité collection, uniting these two Rinck designs separated by seven decades of history.
Facing this sideboard, Savannah Bay Gallery contributed contemporary stools by the Zieta Prozessdesign Studio, home of Polish architect Oskar Zieta. Constructed in sculptural stainless steel with the studio’s Heat finish, they are an inspiring combination of technological innovation and contemporary design. This Paris gallery, always on the lookout for truly dedicated designers, also supplied two table lamps in laminated dichroic glass, the work of Buzao Studio.
The interior was painted by the skilled artisans of Argile and features two of the Paris specialists’ custom shades, Atelier Red and Scala, creating the perfect bold backdrop for the beautiful objets on view.
The exclusive wallpaper is from celebrated English company Fromental, “The Classicist Sketchbook” is a collaborative new design, inspired by full-scale sketches from Rinck’s design archive.
To enhance the space imagined by Rinck, Julia Van Hagen chose a series of potent modern works, with a photograph by Egyptian artist Youssef Nabil, a mixed-media work by New York painter Borden Capalino, a canvas painted in malachite ink by Californian Matthew Brandt and a painting by Jonathan Monk.
This unmissable design event, co-inciding with Paris Design Week takes place from 3rd – 24th September at 21 Rue Bonaparte in Paris by appointment. To arrange your visit please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or take an in-depth virtual tour here!
