History of Maison Armand Jonckers
What's so special about the spectacular ostrich eggshell chandelier at the Manos Premier Hotel in Brussels, the monumental tables at the Baccarat Hotel in New York, the sumptuous Callio table sold at Piasa in Paris or again the majestic red copper, brass and malachite relief of the National Bank of Zaire in Kinshasa? One signature. Armand Jonckers.
Through solid expertise and a recognisable identity, the House of Armand Jonckers conceives exclusive works, bringing together refined metals, precious minerals, coloured resins and distorted objects, to suggest a poetic universe in a constant state of renewal.
These works involve a kind of alchemy: the search for a point of balance between the original raw material and the human touch. The characteristic engravings of Armand Jonckers’ creations form part of a process related to etching, but border on a primitive aesthetic.
Armand Jonckers’ creations are diverse but exclusive; the House only produces one-off pieces, designed and crafted by hand.
One Name, Three Designers…
Armand and his children Alexandra and Grégoire Jonckers: two generations determine the artistic direction of the House of Armand Jonckers, through a constant balance between identifiable aesthetic codes and a dynamic of renewed creation.
