Atmosphère d’ailleurs

Atmosphère d’Ailleurs is an invitation to step out of time, to cross distant lands. To be moved by the poetry that emanates from unique pieces, to join their history.

For Thierry Grundman, travelling antiques dealer and founder of the brand, it is a passion of each moment… and a transmission.

THE WORLD, HIS TERRITORY OF INVESTIGATION

Almost 30 years ago, when leaving the world of contemporary art, Thierry Grundman undertook to go “elsewhere”: towards other projects, towards other cultures. It was in India that THE meeting of his life took place and that the idea of a collection of unusual and rare pieces was born. What determines this choice? Their singularity. The emotion they arouse, the poetry that emerges from them, their timeless and universal beauty. Atmosphère d’Ailleurs was born.

« I marvel at the work of the man who, 100, 200 or 500 years ago, combined the useful and the beautiful in each daily object ».

Neither ostentation, nor emphasis. The discoveries of Thierry, witnesses of a lost know-how, a ritual or a gesture of the everyday life, shine by their simplicity and their evocative strength.

A single filter, an extremely demanding one, makes all the difference: the eye of Thierry Grundman. He knows, he feels. He recognizes the exceptional from the emotion it triggers in him. He evaluates the authenticity in the rightness of the proportions, in the beauty of a texture or a patina, in the velvet of a ceramic, in the depth of a colour. Because it is indeed a selection without concession. Piece by piece.

« I am constantly looking for the aesthetic shock that will move me. An object with strong emotional value never disappoints us”. It is this fullness, this aura emerging from each piece selected by Thierry Grundman which makes the soul of Atmosphère d’Ailleurs. Which plunges us at the same time in another world and fills our desire of Elsewhere.
