After studying biology at the University of Paris, Jerome Cordié followed the Federation Compagnonique to further specialize in cabinet work and furniture restoration.
Always curious to find out about new methods, he joined Jean Perfettini in 1985. He then began to do research into shagreen techniques because their controls were, on many occasions, lost and found again.
He rediscovered a skin which was very appreciated by Art Deco decorators by restoring their beautiful pieces of furniture, some of which are to be found in famous museums.
Jerome Cordié then held a very particular fondness for this iridescent skin, with the round and beaded grain of which he made his speciality.
Recognized for his know-how and labeled French “Living Heritage Company” in 2006, www.patrimoine-vivant.com, it is with great passion that he restores some A. Groult, J. Leleu, E. Rulmann, A. Arbus, J.M. Frank like J. Prouvé, C. Perriand, J. Royère or A. Noll… and many other people quite as talented but less well-known.
He also embodies the know-how of French cabinetmakers and the love to see a job well done. Thus, private individuals but also interior designers, decorators, galerists and museums seek him. Some among these demanding customers trusted him: Peter Marino, Alberto Pinto, Jacques Barn, David Collins, Terence Disdale, the Richard
Gallery, the Rodin Museum…
His taste and imagination for decorative furniture and arts enabled him to create his own registered line called Aisthésis. In creations he uses his shagreen experience and the regulating layout principles of cathedral builders. Jerome Cordié creates pieces of furniture which have a direction because the habitat is the reflection of our inner richness.
Moreover, he is not the last person to convey and publicize this know-how and his creations manufactured in Aisthésis workshop. He participates in fairs and exhibitions in France and abroad (ICCF of New York 2006, Monaco 2008, Carrousel of arts & craft and Creation 2006 and Biennale of the editors of Creation and Decorative Arts 2005 in Paris, www.biennaledelacreation.com )
