  • Catalogue Essay

    Ado Chale’s fascination with minerals began in the 1950s.  By 1966, he had opened his own boutique in Brussels displaying his enormous collection of stones, fossils and minerals from all over the world.  Combining this interest in organic material with his skill for designing, Chale began producing furniture which implemented mosaics he composed of the collected elements, each becoming a unique example of his craftsmanship.
