    Coup de cœur: Anne and Philippe Guilbaud's lace cans

    Love for the creators of these pretty cans recycled in lace furniture. Poetic recycling of cans in useful and aesthetic furniture. Heart stroke ! “Dentelles et Bidons” is under this name that the two artists Anne and Philippe Guilbaud work on the hand of old metal drums to turn them into useful furniture, playful and aesthetic. Their creations are part of a process of recycling, sustainability at the service of the user and the beautiful. Beautiful works, blow of heart! ) (source: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/273875221068273557/ ) See their website: http://www.dentellesetbidons.fr/en

    Michel Haillard, an artist of memory and dignity, humor and heart

    A sublime artist of the animal world, Michel Haillard pays homage to animality by staging the “relics” of the beast. It highlights the power of a life that has been celebrating it, without any morbidity, mixing beauty, respect, rare and precious materials, memory and dignity. I had the joy of meeting the artist in February 2014. Sincere and generous person, he is also endowed with humor. His work is the result of an immense love of nature, where the animal is no longer a trivialized matter and exploited without consideration in a world of consumption, but the possibility of reviving it through furniture-sculpture to the fantastic, dreamlike, aesthetic and functional.…

    Discovery of the Villa Vassilieff in Paris, an extraordinary cultural establishment that previously housed the Montparnasse museum.

His work reveals parts of the body in a fabulous game of strong contrasts and light. There are highlighted man and woman, fetishism, and sadomasochism in a refined photograph, revealing these themes with gentleness and respect.…

    Heart stroke: Pia Maria Rader: Sea Anemone by Pia Maria Rader

    Share 29 29 +1 We love the collection of organic coffee and side tables created by the German designer Pia Maria Rader! True sculptures inspired by the sea, they are beautiful and astonishing. Body moving, these tables designed by Pia Maria rader are composed of many lacquered wood stems (nearly 16000!) Planted on a natural wood panel. Their legs are made of concrete for a foolproof stability. Their forms evoking the anemones are organic and aesthetic. It’s a blow of heart!

    Coup de coeur: The Ghost Chair by Valentina Gonzales

    1 Share 1 131 131 +1 We love the seats sculptures created by the Mexican designer Valentina Gonzales! All in lightness and transparency, these chairs are amazing and exist in limited series. Created in 2009 by designer Valentina Gonzales, these chairs are made in only 13 pieces. They are singular and all different, designed from a transparent acrylic sheet of 4 mm thick. This touch of modernity is based on furniture Louis XV style since the drapes are placed on it, marrying the shapes gently. Heart stroke !

    Perspectives crossed between two artists: Claude Alexandre and Michel Haillard

    An astonishing encounter between two worlds, one photographic, the other phantasmagorical furniture, for an intriguing exhibition where the photography reveals the bodies and where the furniture receives them. Two particular and singular universes will meet for an exhibition entitled FETICHH. Forty black and white fetish photographs signed Claude Alexandre, photographer (deceased in 2010) will be exhibited with the installation of the spooky furniture specially made for the event created by Michel Haillard, universe creator. It is an amazing encounter between extravagant furniture made from animal skins, horns and precious materials that are extraordinarily assembled to create sculpture-furniture where animality is sublimated with grace and respect, in association with body photography.…
