Paris Design Week 2022
For its fifth appearance at Paris Design Week 2022, Balsan unleashes the creative powers of designer Elise Fouin
This designer, who cultivates a poetic world in which she balances the nature of the materials with her traditional, technical know-how, is taking over Balsan’s Paris showroom from 8 to 17 September 2022. Just like Balsan, Elise Fouin is strongly committed to a sustainable approach. She tracks down offcuts and scraps in factories, one of her favourite playgrounds, where she finds neglected materials that she transforms using reformulated designs, combined with new technologies. Always on the lookout to add to her personal laboratory, Elise Fouin experiments with all sorts of things. The designer, some of whose creations are in the permanent collections on display in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, is marching to the beat of her own drum, creating a scene with fine, chiselled features in the colours of the land of Balsan. NEMUS strongly values French manufacturing and pays tribute to working the land and the surrounding natural area while at the same time emphasising the materials recovered from the workshop.
