environmental designer

Roland Mellan is set up in the old Abattoirs of Marseilles, which have been taken over by offbeat creators. Each of his pieces is made entirely in his own workshop and is unique. Unusual forms and materials take shape according to his inspiration and inventiveness as a sculptor of furniture. His work is complex, slow and painstaking, governed by a search for quality. The pieces it gives rise to have soft metal curves, an unexpected sensuality, whether their metal skins be hammered, riveted, coated, patinaed or sandblasted, their wooden frames seem to be covered by a scaly skin. Sometimes velvet or lacquer add to this intensity, but the mark of time that the sculptor imparts to his work gives each piece a timelessness able to resist the eroding effect of fashion. The end result: pieces of surprising beauty. Pure, gentle and powerful lines, a distinct presence.
