Emma Donnersberg ()
Born in France, Emma Donnersberg moved to the US to obtain an MA in interior design from Parsons School of Design. She then opened her own interior design agency in NYC in 2008, also working in Paris.
While creating interiors for her international clients, she was drawn to expand the scope of her projects and started to develop her own design pieces.
At the heart of her practice is the belief that furniture must be sculptural and have an existence beyond its use. She draws her inspiration from nature, an inexhaustible repertoire of forms that she sketches and initially explores on paper. Then comes the embodiment of ideas in matter.
Emma’s choice of materials is of particular importance to her and integral to her organic vocabulary. She works with the best craftsmen who all contribute to the uniqueness and collectibility of each piece.
