Cathy’s love of art books inspired her to create The Lazy Reader – a book stand on wheels made in steel. “I have a huge collection of art books and the idea of them sleeping unopened and being reduced to decorating my shelves drove me to find a solution” Cathy explains. “With the Lazy Reader I can enjoy my fabulous books, like the pieces of art they are and I’m able to change the display at will to have an ever evolving exhibit. The fact that these books tend to be on the weighty side also plays a part”. The Lazy Reader is 75cm high and 66cm wide but can be commissioned at a different height, if required. It’s made in steel and finished in grey metallic paint. Other finishes available on request.

From my own frustration at not finding a table came the idea of sculpting one and casting it in bronze (my very favourite medium). The result: a sculpture turning into a table or a table turning into a sculpture! Table or bench.. inside or outside..you choose. Different patinas possible.

Mixing different sizes of pipe section into asymmetric patterns to create a contrast between the strength of the metal and the ‘delicacy’ of the decorative effect. I’ve called the mirrors ‘Bubble’ because the shapes remind me of dreams – bubbling up from the sub-conscious into the waking mind. This technique can be used to make a wide range of pieces including screens and picture frames.
Turning her attention to lighting, Azria has created these original one-off wall lamps: Oasis and Sunrise. Handcrafted from steel and punched with a whimsical pattern depicting nature, they convey a harmonious atmosphere. Growing up by the sea in the south of France, Azria often visited the Fondation Maeght in St Paul de Vence with her parents and from an early age was enthralled by the work of Sculptors Calder, Brancusi and Giacometti. ‘I loved the simplicity of Calder’s work using simple sheet metal,’ says Azria. ‘I wanted my wall lamps to be poetic and peaceful, with a bit of humour, as that to me is the perfect end of a good day. The lamps add a happy vibe to a room, which ticks another important box for me.’ Made to order, the lamps are fixed to the wall with a simple steel plate, leaving table surfaces free. Also available freestanding. Available finishes: natural steel, white, black powder coating and special colour requests.
