Anne-Cécile Robat and Clément Platret, designers and architects trained in applied arts and crafts, joined forces a few years ago to create Hormé: a design studio that reflects them perfectly. Initially bound by a great friendship, Anne-Cécile and Clément naturally had a desire to collaborate on a creative project. Nurtured by common references and with a close knowledge of one another, they form a solid and irresistible duo.
Inspired by Greek mythology and the wealth of its stories, fantasy and symbolism, the name Hormé was chosen to represent its inspirations, evoking the idea of an impulse – just like the impulse that brought this creative duo together. They have many inspirations, in their own words: “The blacks of St Laurent, the golds of Tom Ford, the blues of Gaultier, the grays of Dior (…) the headwear of Peter Marino, the metals of Tom Dixon, The lobby of the Prince of Wales in Paris, the coat of a Persian, the garden of Majorelle, the monochromes of Klein…”
Anxious to create precious and carefully-designed collections of furniture and art, Hormé chooses to rely on a selection of materials that can guarantee this refinement: wood – ebony, maple, sycamore, walnut – marble – Carrare or Calacatta – brass and leather. Hormé is also surrounded by the best craftsmen for a safe and controlled production process: their collections are made in France, mainly in Paris, and mostly by craftsmen who hold the title of Meilleur Ouvrier de France (Best Worker in France) or Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Company). Each piece of furniture, and indeed each object, is unique, made to order, then signed and numbered.
Finally, Hormé intends to give its customers the pleasant freedom of being able to adjust pieces according to their preferences: to raise a sideboard, to enlarge a side table, to choose the color of a leather, or the finish of a brass.
