An otherworldly table lamp keeps catching our attention. Curved and plant-like, it’s made from a material reminiscent of plaster. After spotting the design in chic settings in France over the last two years, we had to find out more.
Dejeant has since moved back to the south of France, where he grew up; his workshop, Henri Atelier, is in the small town of Béziers. He’s been building things since he was a boy—for his 11th birthday, he received a workbench that he still uses.
Above: Dejeant makes his paper creations out of a proprietary mix of binders, which include plaster of paris and flour, and finishes them with a combination of waxes. “My goal,” he says, “is to maintain an ecological approach from creation to delivery.”
