Sylvain Subervie is a French expat living in Madagascar. He had a very successful career in fashion but one day he ended up visiting Madagascar on a business trip. He was overcome with the raw beauty of the island and turned his back on Paris and all he was involved with there.
He moved there and started to work with iron and rock crystal to express his strong feelings about humanity, beauty and attachment.
He soon developed his very own vocabulary with these technically highly demanding materials and soon created a body of work that includes furniture, lighting and decorative art pieces.
Since 2009 he has focused on monumental works that are permanently exhibit on the French Riviera.
