The visionary office by Ramy Fischler (AD exhibition Metamorphose)
In the frame of the exhibition Metamorphose curated by the Architectural Digest (AD), the designer Ramy Fischler has designed an original and futuristic office.
This « visionary office » is a place of power and decision-making. The furniture consists of a table and a triptych suspended from the ceiling and a rug designed by Fischler and produced by Tai Ping Carpets.
This hand made wool carpet is inlaid with marble stones from Ateliers de France, and covers the floor completely.
The inlaid wooden walls features marbles produced in the quarries of Ateliers de France. A marble table is surprisingly suspended from the ceiling by leather cords and features a cutting-edge touch keyboard that controls light and the sound of the room.
A the centre of the room sits a triptych mirror that is adorned with gilded lines. This mirror, covered in marble, has been transformed into an audio system to broadcast music that has been composed for the exhibit by Sébastien Grandgambe. The exhibit is completed by a futuristic landscape sketched on one wall.
Fischler’s collaboration with his design partner was just the beginning. He also involved French wirter, Jean-Baptiste Del Amo, who attended all meetings and who will make Fischler’s futuristic vision come to life in narrative.
The narrative is that of a forger named Nemrod. This mysterious character, full of power and timeless, crosses the city to meet him at his office event though an election is held.
Located in a tower that marks the skyline of the city, Nemrod found that what composes his identity and recalls his memories. He also reflects on the meaning of objects, their construction and symbolic value.
Liaising directly with French artisans and manufacturers to develop pieces unique to AD Intérieurs 2013, Fischler draws on history and craft to create work that is contemporary yet strengthens the ties between old and new. Revealing multiple challenges and encouraging thought, he also takes this opportunity to create a unique exhibit unlike any other.
