Abel Cárcamo Emma Donnersberg

Abel Cárcamo, the Chilean-born designer, began exploring the materials of bronze, plaster, and wood in his Santiago studio. The designer now works out of Paris where he hand molds his sculptural de-signs in plaster and works with artisans, primarily in bronze, to materialize his designs using the lost-wax technique. Cárcamo draws inspiration from everyday objects–from the present as well as the past– and the presence of meandering yet minimalist lines are consistent through his body of work.

Born in France, interior designer and design publisher Emma Donnersberg left Europe and moved to the United States in 2000 to complete her Bachelor of Arts degree at Tulane University, New Orleans. She subsequently graduated from Parson’s School of Design in New York with a focus on interior design. With offices in Paris and New York City, Donnersberg has built an international clientele, and has completed numerous, acclaimed interior design projects in both Europe and North America.
 
Donnersberg’s cohesive design vocabulary translates in her Editions Donnersberg; a comprehensive design catalogue of pieces informed by artisanal dexterity and the designer’s ongoing collaboration with artists and artisans across Europe, such as the ‘Cèpes’ series of unique ceramic stools created in collaboration with master-ceramicist Karen Swami, or Donnersberg’s long-standing collaboration with architect/designer Michel Amar. For Donnersberg’s most recent work with Amar – the ‘Canyon’ editions of stone tables - Courbet introduced the duo to the stone carvers of Ateliers Saint-Jacques. Today, the Donnersberg Editions represents a comprehensive body of work inspired by Europe’s ongoing craftsmanship traditions and the artist’s ongoing collaborations with revered artisans across Europe.

Their shared commitment to master-craftsmanship ethos and collaborative approach have brought Donnersberg and Ateliers Courbet founder Melanie Courbet together. A longstanding friend and collaborator of the gallery, Donnersberg is who brought Michel Amar’s editions to Ateliers Courbet and more recently initiated the collaboration between Courbet and master-ceramicist Karen Swami. Courbet and Donnersberg’s ongoing dialogue has resulted in the latest Donnersberg Editions’ series ‘Penzai’; a limited edition of sculptural, morpheus tables and lights that were hand-modeled and sculpted by Chilean artist Abel Carcamo under Donnersberg’s creative direction, and later cast in bronze and hand-patinated by the bronzesmiths of Fonderie Fusion — David de Gourcuff’s esteemed art foundry based in Auvergne, France.
