Axel Chay

In 2013, Axel Chay and Marouane Fadki, freshly graduated from business school, decided to create Nova Obiecta: a Marseille design house that offers items and furniture on the border between art and design. Both designers and creators, they design and conceive creations and do their marketing through trade fairs, shows, specialist galleries etc. Their hybrid creations are produced in limited series. Each piece is manufactured or industrialised in France, so the hands or machines behind the objects can come from the aeronautics or nuclear sector, as well as from historical French know-how. 100% made in France combining high technology, in particular for laser cutting, and hand-finishing...

In 2013, Axel Chay and Marouane Fadki, freshly graduated from business school, decided to create Nova Obiecta: a Marseille design house that offers items and furniture on the border between art and design. Both designers and creators, they design and conceive creations and do their marketing through trade fairs, shows, specialist galleries etc. Their hybrid creations are produced in limited series. Each piece is manufactured or industrialised in France, so the hands or machines behind the objects can come from the aeronautics or nuclear sector, as well as from historical French know-how. 100% made in France combining high technology, in particular for laser cutting, and hand-finishing up to and including tailor-made.

Axel Chay designs contemporary pieces, both utilitarian and sculptural, paying homage to kinetic art and the Memphis movement. Seeking abstraction through strict, calculated geometric shapes, he aims to breathe new life into sculptural furniture and plays with raw materials such as cork, steel and aluminium.

In search of new functional forms that flirt with art, Axel Chay's creations stand out with their strong presence. Geometric abstraction is expressed in volumes of raw materials that seem to defy space and time. Technicality and precision contribute to the uniqueness of his creations.

Axel Chay shuns the race for a universal, global object that will please everyone, and which could be duplicated at will. Freed from commercial constraints, Axel Chay thus creates sculptural objects whose functionality can, of course, be easily found, but whose plastic beauty and rarity are the real driving force.
