French star architect Tristan Auer gives free rein to Studio Ler for the design and the fabrication of two small side table tabletops (diameter: 60 cm) intended for a Parisian apartment. The duo proposes a mineral and solar variation in which enamel in turn strikes, hides, and overexposes the lava stone, for an interplay of black and white that reveals the primal character of the material and its telluric aura.

1-Gréco au saut du lit à La Louisiane
Jean-Paul Sartre lived in room 10, which was then passed on to Juliette Gréco, where she had madly loved Miles Davis, before Simone de Beauvoir would finally settle her chambers there. Soon to follow — Albert Cossery, Pink Floyd, Quentin Tarantino, Nan Goldin and Etienne Daho… For its first edition, Bienvenue Design, a new fair format imagined by Olivier Robert, will take place at La Louisiane — a star-less hotel for future stars located in the heart of Saint Germain-des-Prés, wherein each winding corridor bears legend. For almost 80 years, La Louisiane has been the intimate and bohemian refuge where writers, poets, filmmakers, musicians and artists have chosen to spend a moment, a night or a lifetime sharing stories. This September, 25 of the top Belgian and international gallerists invited by Olivier Robert and Jean-François Declercq will invest in their own mythical chambers to tell us, this time, unique stories of objects.

Studio Ler has designed and produced a collection of customised enamelled volcanic rock tiles since 2015, for individuals and architects. The designs indiscriminately adorn kitchens (in their credenza version) or floors (indoors and outdoors, since volcanic rock can withstand frost), providing a natural and contemporary covering. “We always visibly retain the raw stone on part of the surface and it is this dialogue between the volcanic rock and the enamel that interests us,” the two designers explain.

Volcanic rock is the only stone in the world that can be coated with enamel. The reason is its incredible heat resistance, enabling it to be fired in enamelling kilns at 990 degrees. This resilience seems an appropriate turn of events for a material first emerging as a liquid, cast into molten rock on the slopes of the volcanoes of Auvergne, whose boiling state eventually subsides and cools, slowly petrifying in contact with the air. The volcanic rock is then cut, dissected on plates, and sent to the Breton Studio Ler to be adorned with an enamel in the contemporary designs that are the signature of the designer duo.
