In 2006, Lucas de Stael, designer, started Undostrial, before launching his eponymous Lucas de Stael brand in 2012. His workshop was set up in an old printing factory located in the 19th precinct of Paris, which turned the location into an experimental laboratory, and a genuine hub for creation and production. Lucas de Stael states its goal as “to transform matter into art, to experiment without restraints, in order to materialize the wildest dreams into reality.” We believe he has succeeded in this and our decision to stock a selection from his range was based upon the under-stated yet captivating quality of both the materials used and the attention to detail employed. He is the only frame manufacturer in the world to make frames with stone! 0.1mm sheets of schist or basalt on a stainless steel core, totally unique frames.
