As Jallu’s Aesthetic Director and primary designer, Sandra Scolnik- Jallu draws inspiration from her career as a respected studio artist in New York. Sandra brings a collaborative spirit and creative flair to the atelier. Her paintings are in the Whitney Museum of American Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and private collections. Herself a collector of everyday objects, Sandra is attracted to the intersection of indulgence and simplicity. Drawing, painting and cooking are her constant pursuits.
A master ébeniste and a member of the Compagnons du Devoir, Yann Jallu maintains a deep connection to “Patrimoine” — France’s cultural heritage, the accumulation of savoir faire shared from one generation to the next. As a steward of the French decorative arts tradition, Yann is committed to ensuring that savoir faire is passed to the next generation, which is why Jallu is known for their highly sought-after apprenticeships. Looking back and forward simultaneously, Yann is a creative artisan with an unparalleled understanding of materials and construction.
