Sandra Benhamou launched her design studio in 2010 after leaving behind her career in films. Her passion for movies influences her well-honed sense for beautiful settings, and her art of mixing and matching objects, styles and periods. Sandra dreams up sophisticated interiors that combine contemporary art and design, vintage furniture and custom pieces. Furniture from the 1970s is paired with contemporary photographs and works by Italian artists such as Gio Ponti and Carlo Scarpa—both of whom Sandra Benhamou holds in great esteem. She is an art-collector and an expert in the art market. Her keen, curious eye helps her creating the perfect blend of tension and intrigue: she brings a singular, anti-conformist narrative to the interiors she decorates, whether it’s a luxurious Parisian apartment, a home in Normandy or a high-end residential project.
Sandra Benhamou conceives eclectic settings of the highest standards, with an added touch of femininity, in which light plays a crucial role. She breaks the rules instinctively and with confidence; she loves to play with contrasting materials and draws inspiration from history—aiming at conjuring a special atmosphere. Sandra Benhamou works to refine each element with the greatest attention to detail, drawing on her talents as an interior designer to create expressive, sophisticated worlds.
Ginger, a collection inspired by different imaginaries of the US in the seventies: the electric America of Martin Scorsese’s films, that of the flamboyant excesses of Studio 54 and the behind-the-scene rooms of Las Vegas, where mafiosi, artists and politicians traded their secrets. “Ginger” is also Sharon Stone in Casino: extravagant, invincible, and incandescent. The collection recreates the elegance of a bar from that period: extreme and intimate luxury, bordering on decadence. Stainless steel and brass, glass, mirrors, high-gloss lacquer and velvet: “Ginger” reinvents forms and materials with timeless elegance. Each piece is hand-made by French master craftsmen, and is available in a limited edition.
