Today, he is one of the most acclaimed contemporary designers worldwide.
Ingrid Donat at Carpenters Workshop Gallery
Tribal, an exquisite bronze and leather bench will feature as part of Ingrid Donat’s solo exhibition on Carpenters Workshop Gallery’s stand at PAD London. The gallery gave Donat carte blanche of its booth, which she completely transformed into her vision of a home, creating a floor-to-ceiling ambiance, including a dining room and a lounge.
Presented exclusively at PAD London, this spectacular angular goldplated table will be one of the starring pieces on Garrido’s stand this year. The Madrid-based sibling designers Juan and Paloma Garrido, the children of the late renowned silversmith Damían Garrido, are known for their mastery of the medium and their blend of traditional silver working with bold geometric forms and daring contemporary designs.
HERVÉ VAN DER STRAETEN
Hervé Van der Straeten’s striking unique and limited edition creations have brought him international recognition. Since opening in 1999, his gallery in the Marais district of Paris features furniture, lighting, mirrors and objects and jewelry combining a radical freedom of expression with meticulous execution.
This collection of horn-marquetry tables with solid gouged brass legs and softly shaped table tops are offered in various heights, making it possible to transform a Japanese tea table into an elegant console, or an end-table into a gaming table. This format combines the strength and robustness of the materials with the meticulous refinement of their design. The natural qualities of the horn give the tables their wonderfully varied, glowing surfaces.
