is a french design and scenography studio founded by Apolline Couverchel and Gauthier Haziza.
Fascinated by scenic illusions, stagecraft leads their aesthetic.
A large part of their work is dedicated to the act of showing through a theatrical approach of light and movement.
The studio imagines performative objects and time-based installations to give rise to poetic experiences.
The narratives that surround their projects are equally as important as the end-result.
Their productions carry a diversity of materials with optical and kinetic properties, exploring the idea of how technology and craft skills can interact.
The work of Studio Élémentaires is building up around vibrant collaborations, commissioned projects and self productions.
Their workshop is based in Brussels, Belgium in Zaventem Ateliers.
Attached to share their craft, Apolline & Gauthier act in the National School of Arts and Design (ENSAAMA, Paris).
