© Nicolas Scordia

I like to create functional silver objects that surprise, seduce by their line and deceive the perception of balance.

What I'm proud of:

I am happy to have created my own line of contemporary goldsmith and silversmith work.
I also appreciate the collective work as I have been able to practice it by collaborating with designers. That's how Osmos with Felipe Ribon and t-time with Noir-Vif were born.

Atome

With the ewer « Atome », Nicolas Marischael once again chooses to play the game of forms and materials. This ewer, made up with two reversed spheres bounded together with an handle made of solid silver and covered with shagreen – which is a sort of fish leather – symbolizes even better this challenge the artist – goldsmith lays down for equilibrium in most of his creations.

Atome’s spheres were elaborated and polished with a specific machine. Then, they were shaped with a hammer. The shagreen was directly stuck on the spout.

Egg cup Impact

The Impact collection is growing with the creation of our Impact Egg Cup and its Egg Spoon. Handcrafted and made of solid silver, this piece not only emphasizes the power of working with the material, like the Impact Champagne Bucket, but this time put forward the meticulousness required for two goldsmith specific techniques : engraving and chasing.

Made of solid silver and hand-made, just like the Eggcup and Champagne Bucket, our latest creation is now available in a limited edition of eight unique pieces. Mélissa Marischael is also responsible here for the graphic design of this new creation.

Natura

Avec Natura, Nicolas Marischael change de style tout en restant dans le même univers. Certes une véritable rupture se fait dans l’univers géométriquement vertical du créateur, mais le jeu de l’équilibre et le dépassement des limites physiques est toujours pérenne, introduisant encore une fois des dynamiques jamais effleurées dans le monde des orfèvres.

Description :
Entirely made with a hammer, Natura is made of hammered and welded silver

Nova

A delicate balance is suggested between the sliced ellipses in the Nova candle holders. The piece made of silver plated metal and glass conveys a sense of quiet refinement.

Nicolas Marischaël pays homage to the 18th century tradition of having a candle supporting element go through the base of the candle holder. In this sense, Nova is a contemporary reframing of a traditional object. The glass part is set into the base of the piece and can be removed. The candle light is beautifully captured and refracted along its enclosing glass cylinder.

Osmos

Osmos is a perfume diffuser handmade in solid silver. When loaded with fragrant bead, Osmos releases fragrance while it absords odors when loaded with sterilizing beads. The know-how of the silversmith and the experiments of designer Felipe Ribon were both crucial during the design and development stages of the diffuser.
In 2015, Osmos won the “Liliane Bettencourt Prize pour l’intelligence de la Main » in the « Dialogue » category.
