Le Diamantaire’s artworks explore themes of transformation and the relationship between materials and their environment, and are often designed to be interactive, encouraging viewers to engage with them in new and unexpected ways.
Le Diamantaire creates his sculptures using a variety of materials, including glass, metal, and concrete. His work has been featured in numerous publications, including the New York Times, the Guardian, and Vogue, and he has collaborated with luxury brands to create installations and limited edition pieces.

He has said that his ultimate goal is to create works that ”bring joy to people’s lives” and encourage them to see the world in a new way.
