When design gets tangled with art
Located on Jean Talon Street in Montreal, Studio Botté is known for their unique and delightful fixtures. Playing with the boundaries between art and design. The montreal firm is offering an original and minimalist collection. The charisma of this company goes beyond the aesthetic of their creations.
The mantra of the studio is short and sweet: « have fun while creating uncommun objects ». This little sentence represents the way that the studio apprehends his work. Fun and crazy are the key to success according to Studio Botté. Every pieces of the collection are attesting the innovative, playful and offset side of the creator and founder of Studio Botté, Philippe Charlebois.
The main idea behind Studio Botté is about recycling objects and giving them a second life. Even some people would call the founder « Robin of the back streets». It has been through his formation in Industrial design that Philippe developed the ability to see beyond old and trash objects.
«Creating in the absence of constance gives an impression of shimmer and diversity » - Philippe.
The creativity of the designer takes him to transform dulls objects into useful & aesthetic decorative objects.
Not only that ecology is important for Studio Botté, the essence of his work is again mainely about creating uncommon pieces where there's a story behind.
We can conclude that Studio Botté is seducing everybody by its values and the offset and unsual aspect. C'est Beau was mesmerized as well and chose this firm to conceive their fixtures in their first physical store.
