Pascale Giardin
imageMontreal’s Pascale Giardin is a Concordia Fine Arts Alumni from Studio Arts (BFA 91) who, for the past few years, has been exploring the architectural space. Pascale’s installations are motivated by pure forms; her innovative concepts are characteristic with rhythmic patterns and textured surfaces. Although monochromatic, natural elements always seem to find their way into Pascal’s intimate designs. Even her most original designs echo a delicate balance between form and function. You can find some of her recent handiwork at Montreal's celebrated Toqué restaurant, Chicago's New China Grill restaurant in the Hard Rock Hotel; Toronto's gallery-boutique Hollace Cluny; Le Germain Hotel in Montreal; Boutique Bô in Paris and in Nobu restaurants in New York, Las Vegas and Miami.

A material like clay is vulnerable and flexible at the same time; the inherent properties of the medium produce one-of-a-kind authentic pieces for Pascale. Her materials of choice: earthenware, semi-sandstone, semi-porcelain all help create a slew of services offering architectural ceramics, porcelain curtains, accessories of decoration. Pascale’s works are inspired by the effortless beauty found in nature; each object is made with a great respect to the medium and its tradition.

Pascale is now working on various projects with well-established interior design firms in toronto such as Yabu Pushelberg, B|H Design Consultants Inc and II by IV. Be sure to visit her in Studio North booth number SN17 at the Interior Design Show 2006
