For more than 14 years, Isabelle Stanislas has been working on 150+ projects including interior design and showcases. Running her own company, So-An Architecure, with Leiko Oshima, she optimizes commercial and residential areas as well as private houses or apartments. As a student, “the best years of my life” she says, she develops video games and showrooms along with her friends, photographers, architects, landscape artists. Her masters (Jean Prouvé, Louis Khan, Renzo Piano and Tadao Ando) play a key role in her career. “I’m still an assiduous student, she stresses. I’m always listening to what they can share with us.” Working with Ann-Valérie Hash or the Zadig & Voltaire shops allowed her to express her own idea of creation. Now, she would love to venture into the fashion world. “But don’t expect me to launch a collection”, she smiles. Steel, resin and concrete are her favourite materials when she creates furnitures. A Thai boxing enthusiast, she always sees her job full of joie de vivre.
