Franck Genser,
exploring the soul of objects

Since 2015, Franck Genser has been creating contemporary furniture pieces unlike anything we have ever seen. Combining functionality, art and emotion, each one revisits the codes of interior design with rare boldness and elegance. Franck Genser’s multi-disciplinary team of engineers and craftsmen bring his fantasies to life. Freely inspired by his own imagination, the designer allows himself to explore all creative avenues. With a mantra that stamps his seal on every one of his eccentric pieces of furniture: create what isn’t already! The Parisian design studio opened its doors to the editors of Signatures Singulières Magazine. And what we discovered touched our hearts. An immersion in a world where Beauty has definitely taken up quarters!

From designer to artist, There is only one step

An engineer by training and an entrepreneur by passion, Franck Genser is also a designer whose contemporary creations have left their mark on the world of interior design. A lifelong enthusiast of early twentieth-century furniture, he cultivates the creative freedom characteristic of the Roaring Twenties, which saw the emergence of new forms. It’s an ambition that he has taken up with brio! Fascinated by the soul of objects and their influence on individuals, he opted for a sensitive aesthetic. Presiding over every design, his quest for Beauty is the first dimension of the use of his furniture. A psychological utility reminiscent of Gestalt therapy! In this discipline, which Franck Genser trained in, the design approach focuses on the constant interaction of the human being with his or her environment. The result? Emotionally vibrant objects that leave no one unmoved…

The nobility of French craftsmanship

As ambassadors for the excellence of French craftsmanship, all Franck Genser creations are astonishing in their purity of line, but also in the nobility of their materials. Each piece of furniture is a blend of exceptional craftsmanship and heritage. This ability to withstand the test of time is due as much to their timeless aesthetics as to their exacting manufacturing standards! Entirely dedicated to high-end bespoke creations, this Parisian design studio has chosen to work exclusively with noble materials such as walnut, parchment, marble, alabaster and Japanese lacquer. These first-rate materials will develop a charming patina over time, adding that extra touch of soul to the whole!

Franck Genser, a man of his time

But what’s most appealing about Franck Genser’s contemporary furniture pieces is their astonishing shapes, whose singularity is recognizable at first glance. A case in point is the Chumtak desk, a spectacular piece in American walnut and sfumato lacquer. We also love the Shogun dining table, which, as its name suggests, brings together Japanese aesthetics and the minimalist spirit of Franck Genser. Enhanced by bright red lacquer! But the favorite of the Signatures Singulières editorial team is undoubtedly the Piscine coffee table. A must-have piece by Franck Genser, it embodies all the designer’s playfulness, with its ladder-shaped base in waxed brass. The hot-patinated bronze top offers this unique blue color. A creation to be reserved for interiors that don’t shy away!
