Atelier 4/5 is, in other words, design for everyone. Simple operations on old items found on the flee market are the basis of their craft. They indeed aim at giving a second life to objects having an interesting forms or texture. A bit of restoration can get a furniture or a lamp a second wind, but it is often the combination between the old piece and a contemporary touch that will give the contrast and bring forward the original item. By means of examples, fruit crates becomes a storage furniture, an old champagne case is the basic element for a low table, or then again an old dressing screen is transformed into a shelf.
Atelier 4/5 strives to re-use everything in the surrounding and creates unique pieces. Unpretentiously, they fight against the actual extreme consumption tendency and suggest a reflexion on our relationship towards material goods.
