Covetable Designs by Sophie Dries

Stories Editor's Pick Covetable Designs by Sophie Dries

Sophie Dries challenges the conventions of Parisians design.

Known for her eclectic & sophisticated projects, the French architect elevates raw materials and simple lines to new, contemporary designs that redefine French chic.  

Glow is a striking collection of lighting fixtures made of blown glass, brass, and papier mâché produced by Kaia. The juxtaposition of these dissimilar materials creates a kinetic balance between organic and geometric, between natural and artificial, suggesting the possibility of harmonious coexistence.  

Merging traditional craft techniques and innovative know-how, Sophie Dries delivers striking pieces of furniture: The Songye Table is a fascinating association of oxidized steel with traditional oak. We love this mix of seemingly unrelated materials united into an uncommon shape!  

The Italian postwar art movement with its exploration of natural, humble materials informs Sophie Dries’ creativity and her desire to embrace sustainability. Striking the perfect balance between warm and restrained, Traces, a collection of rugs and objects is inspired by the “scars” left on the surface of clay when it’s fired in the kiln.
