THE STUDIO

From his studio in Geneva, Philippe Cramer conceives small editions and unique artworks. Each piece is manufactured by exacting and passionate artisans that he selects for their commitment to his artistic vision and their attention to detail. He thrives to offer exceptional work, often marked with minor natural nuances, the sort that can only come from hand-crafting. Poetic, timeless and produced from the finest materials, his work attracts a public searching for exceptional pieces, notable for the originality of their concept and the quality of their realisation.

The artist owes his freedom of expression to having founded his own studio, Cramer + Cramer, in 2001. Conceived as a laboratory, it is for Philippe a place of experimentation, one in which he has the liberty to develop his creative ideas, using traditional crafts and noble materials as well as exploring new processes and techniques.

As an artist Philippe draws upon his unconscious and his innate sensitivity to reach the universal.

His work embodies antique archetypes and the inner child, combining them with an unsettling familiarity. Each object entices with its sensuality: a playful curve, a joyous explosion of colour, the raw evidence of its material, the elegance of its refined lines.

Philippe’s art is born more from instinct than reason; it is an act more than a concept. Each creation draws upon, as its source, the visceral, raw sensibility of the artist, his interest in artifacts of ancient civilizations and his fascination with the poetry of nature.

He crafts timeless pieces made to keep, share and hand down. His creations are essentially about building bridges.
