Inspired by the work of famous interior designers such as Pierre Chareau and Carlo Scarpa, Rodolphe Parente decided to study interior design and product design. He studied at Ecole Nationale des Beaux Arts of Dijo, Ecole Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs and École Cantonale d’Art de Lausanne.
Rodolphe Parente is in constant pursuit for sense of detail, savoir-faire and quality of construction. In order to touch the right tone for his creations, Rodolphe places the user at the center of an artistic process expressing emotions through the quality of drawing. His designs are inspired by everyday life and an intimate mixture of textures and artistic feelings.
The flat is located in the area of Trocadero in Paris and faces the Eiffel Towel. It is about 350 sqm and gets generous volumes with some existing decorative elements and features as decorative moldings, coffered ceilings, pediments and marble fireplaces. The main idea of this refurbishment was to propose sensible interventions while respecting the heritage character, emphasizing on the significance of volumes where a contemporary art and furniture collection would get all the recognition it deserves. Despite the singularity of the flat, there is a warm atmosphere that results from strong and ambitious stylistic choices such as the choice of noble materials. The association of the two main materials that are medal brass and Calacatta Caldia marble is a timeless signature that emphasizes the global coherence between spaces.
