Caroline Scholl’s inspiration takes its origin in her childhood. Her first skills were passed down by her father, an ironworker and cutlery craftsman. She tries out technical gestures with him, learns about volum, density, gravity, measures different features, either solid or hollow…
The heat, the noise, the smell of the machines, and the magical transformation of the materials: her father’s workshop is her favourite playground. Later on she learns interior architecture and design at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts in Nancy. There, she falls in love with the aesthetic language of the decorative arts.
She then develops her own style, skills and savoir-faire in the prestigious French luxury Critallerie Lalique, where she is to head the creative department for eight years. Meanwhile, she keeps on drawing, inventing, imagining, and searching. One day, intuition transforms into certainty: Secret d’Alchimie was born. Two series of objects emerged, blending design and prestigious craftsmanship, all exclusively carried out in France.
Soon there will be other projects. Caroline follows her motto as always: finding the perfect balance to achieve the equation of emotion.
« My creations are, above all, human adventures with craftsmen and masters of art. I never dictate my drawing. It’s teamwork during which we explore, challenge technical constraints, and play with them together. I like to be in that process. We compare our ideas, searching for the perfect match, until we finally create the emotion I’m looking for. »
