Eric Schmitt

He creates, designs and shapes pieces in his workshop before entrusting them to the best craftsmen in France.

Eric Schmitt is one of the most creative artists continuing the Art Deco tradition. He is at the cutting edge of sculpture, architecture and design. His work features contemporary, fluid forms that have been melted, carved or blown using solid materials such as bronze, alabaster, marble and Bohemian glass. After focusing on lines and right angles, Schmitt has turned his attention to curves. His pieces respect geometrical rules while symbolically evoking natural forms. He creates, designs and shapes pieces in his workshop before entrusting them to the best craftsmen in France.

Eric Schmitt was born in 1955 in Toulouse. He lives and works near Fontainebleau. He began a career in experimental music before deciding to focus on sculptural furniture at La Plaine Saint-Denis near Paris. He is self-taught and exhibited his first pieces at VIA in Paris in 1987. His pieces, which reflect his unique take on the French Art Deco tradition, are often made to measure or limited editions. His work has been exhibited many times in Paris, Stuttgart, New York and Los Angeles.
