BIOGRAPHY

DE FOUQUIERES Marie-Claude

Marie-Claude de Fouquières was the wife of a leading industrialist in plastics. In 1969, she made her first piece of furniture out of polyester resin because she could not find a table she liked. She then experimented with thick coloured polyester resin and made tables, desks, objects, lamps and panels which quickly became very successful with private clients such as David de Rothschild, the Emir of Qatar or famous designers such as David Hicks, Alberto Pinto or Henri Samuel. Marie-Claude de Fouquières' signature is her fractal resin, a spectacular effect obtained through a chemical reaction which gives an incredibly poetic result. In 1977, after the passing of her husband, she stopped her activity in order to continue her husband's business.
