ADO CHALE (Brussels, 1928).

Presents marks of use.
Measurements: 35 x 130 x 60 cm.

Ado Chale's language experiments with materials while seducing the contemporary market.

Since 2005, Ado Chale focuses his creations on these materials, develops new forms and surfaces, while seducing the contemporary market.
Self-taught, as a young man, Ado Chale worked as a blacksmith and in a sheet metal workshop. His passion for mineralogy began in the 1950s during a trip to Germany. Later, in 1962, he opened a gallery in Brussels where he exhibited the first cement boards inlaid with small marcasites collected at the foot of the cliffs of northern France. In the late 1960s he traveled the world (Arizona, India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Madagascar, France) in search of semi-precious stones. Among his favorite materials were fossilized sequoia, malachite, chalcedony agate, carnelian, rhodochrosite, lapis lazuli, jade, hematite, tiger's eye, jasper, turquoise or amethyst, elements that were cast in epoxy resin, a new material at the time that allowed him to expand the aesthetic possibilities: the trays are enlarged and completely covered with diamond-polished stones. From the 1960s to the 1980s his success multiplied and even the Belgian Court was enraptured by his designs. He exhibited at the Galliera Museum in Paris, at the Papal Palace in Avignon and at the Museum of Fine Arts in Nancy. In 1988 he was invited to exhibit his work in Japan, at the famous Seibu luxury store in Tokyo. There he attracted the Asian market. In 2002 he exhibited at the Parisian gallery of Yves Gastou, which meant an increase in international clientele that would open the way to numerous collaborations with Belgian interior designers, but also world-renowned ones such as Alberto Pinto, Peter Marino and Jacques Grange.
