Atelier Amalthea is owned and run under the watchful eye of Krzysztof Sienkiewicz. Krzysztof’s remarkable passion and attention to detail set ever-higher expectations at his atelier. Each piece that passes through the atelier is worked on by Krzysztof to ensure it meets his exacting standards.
Krzysztof worked for celebrated contemporary artist Mauro Perucchetti before undertaking a 5 year apprenticeship with a luxury furniture company in London. Over this period Krzysztof mastered the rare skill of working with Shagreen and Vellum, becoming the companies’ expert in high quality finishes.
Since establishing Atelier Amalthea in 2010, Krzysztof has continued to push and develop hand crafted techniques including unique colour and surface finishing processes.
The Vellum Room was created for a private residence in London.
Each panel in the Vellum Room is unique, handmade using antique vellum, then finished with mother of pearl inlay detail.
Each work that comes to the atelier is hand crafted using techniques perfected over many years, these short video clips give an insight into some of the processes that we use.
Atelier Amalthea has worked with timeless materials including shagreen and vellum since 2010.
These materials are a naturally sourced by-product from the food industry and conform to CITES certification.
They arrive at our atelier in their raw state ready to be delicately worked into beautiful bespoke coverings.
Atelier Amalthea collaborates with interior designers, bespoke cabinetmakers and private clients to create truly unique pieces.
