Artist and designer Julie Thévenot launched her eponymous line of avant-garde, playful accessories and decorative objects in 2012.
Following an MFA from the National Superior School of Decorative Arts, Thévenot left Paris for New York City in 2005, feeling an immediate kinship with her new environment in its ”always-on” functionality and supportive, albeit competitive, energy.
Thévenot’s artistic training is heavily factored into her experimental, research-based work process, opening herself to boundless sources of inspiration that help maintain a jubilant, playful avant-garde, and distinctive sensibility.
In 2005, the self-taught designer launched a clothing collection that, though short-lived, instigates and informs the work she currently produces today.
The resulting aesthetic and shapes of her jewelry and decorative objects collection summons an unexpected symmetry and is wholly reflective of the free-spirited and spontaneous qualities of discovery.
The reworked shapes become singular and visually challenging, synthesizing primitive shapes with ultra contemporary, cosmic ideation.
Production of each object is done by hand, and conceived by pairing quality, natural materials with unique, technical processes.
