The Camerich LA partners first discovered Atelier Areti at a modern furniture fair in Cologne quite a few years ago. Now, in addition to stocking both Areti collections (lighting and furniture), Camerich LA/SF are the exclusive North American distributors for the brand. We LOVE their minimal yet luxurious approach, and their focus on materiality and shape. (shown above, the Disc and Sphere Desk Lamp)
Atelier Areti are sisters Gwendolyn Kerschbaumer and Guillane Kerschbaumer. They are based mainly in London, but manufacture primarily in Germany. (shown above, the Column Globe Floor Lamp)
Prior to starting Atelier Areti together, Gwendolyn worked in architecture firms both in Europe and the States, and holds a fine art degree from Duke University, and graduate architecture degrees from Harvard University and ETH, Zurich.
Guillane studied Art History and Archaeology at the Sorbonne in Paris, earning a DEUG. She then studied Product Design at London’s prestigious Central Saint Martins, graduating in 2006 and starting an interior design practice, which she did for several years prior to working with Gwendolyn as Atelier Areti.
