- Our Story
Jonathan Amar Studio is a multidisciplinary studio created in 1989 with offices in Paris and Rabat and production units split between Morocco and Portugal.
We produce bespoke brass lighting, furniture and accessories with a style characterized by the double ambition of being modern and familiar, universal yet poetic. Our know-how stems from combining traditional materials such as wicker, rattan and leather with brass and glass through meticulous workmanship.
Our activities are split into three domains:
- Design studio
- FF&E manufacturing
- Interior design consultancy
Our bespoke collections represent 35 years of passion and know-how in the fields of decorative arts and interior design.
Over these years we have built a strong ecosystem within Moroccan and Portuguese artisanries with the aim of perpetuating their cultural heritage.
Each product design is made-to-measure and adapted to all types of clients and professionals for small and large scale projects. All items are made-to-measure and available upon order.
Jonathan Amar also works as a consultant for international design firms with luxury projects in Morocco where his studio oversees artisanal production units.
Projects include: Royal Mansour, Les Bains Douches, Comptoir Marrakech, Renaissance hotel, Castel, Nobu, numerous Costes restaurants and bars in Paris, Momo's and Sketch in London, Aroma Café in Bahrein, Club Med suites, Saint James hotel, many Starck hotel and restaurant projects and more.
Clients: Soho House, Ken Fulk, David Scott Interiors, Damon Liss, Charles and co, Studio Ashby, Jonathan Adler, Nate Berkus, Kelly Wearstler and many more.
Handcrafted between France, Portugal and Morocco with exclusive French and Italian resources, our pieces honour the relationship between meticulous workmanship and quality materials through the thickness, finishes and fixtures of each creation.
Due to the handmade nature each piece is unique and might vary slightly in finish.
Brass, the central element of most creations, is available in an array of finishes: nickel-plated, polished, varnished or aged.
The finish you select and the way you care for your purchase throughout the years results in one of a kind pieces. Since Brass is a metal that works well with a multitude of materials, our studio associates it with a unique palette of colours and textures.
Fabric and wicker are used to design lampshades; mosaics and marbles form table tops and bases; lamp stems are sheathed in hand pleated leather by artisan saddlers. Hand-engravings, the iconic know-how of our atelier, are available on a selected number of models as an additional request.
