EMMANUEL DE BAYSER DIFFERENT WORLDS
First of all, Paris and Berlin are like two different worlds colliding.

The love for mid-century art – pervades everything. Even from the extensive collection of books on his German apartment’s library, we can perceive the allure the 50s and 60s have on his style. Besides, he lets himself be inspired by Jean Prouvé, Jean Royère and Jean-Michel Frank. As well as, Marc du Plantier and Georges Jouve. Also, Diego Giacometti, Joseph Dirand, Jacques Grange, Pierre Yovanovitch. Likewise, influenced by the 19th-century, mainly Haussmannian architecture. Besides, his artistic culture comes from his heritage for sure: “There were artists and art dealers in my family, so I lived surrounded by aesthetics—paintings, furniture, objects”.
The Berlin apartment, situated on Mitte’s Gendarmenmarkt, answers to every mid-century prayer. An alluring atmosphere based on chromatic contrast such as black, white, and earthy colors plays between different textures. Emmanuel de Bayser always researches personality in his artistic choices, “a story to be told”, without forgetting the aim for luxuries and comforts.
Emmanuel de Bayser passion in ceramics lets us understand the reasons: “I had to be interested in it because I had no place for furniture. So, I found a way of learning more about things I already owned!”. For this reason, the apartment is a never-ending project. Its always evolving like art itself. Different art pieces, various influences, but always reminding the space of his true fancy. Appartment surrounded by pair of sheep sculptures by François-Xavier Lalanne, French mid-century ceramicist Georges Jouve’s colorful ceramics. Also, the chairs of Jean Prouvé. Everything explores the long-time quest of his specific style.
