Pierre Favresse's Perch Collection is among the works that will be on display at "Nouvelle vague, the new French domestic landscape" exhibition curated by Cédric Morisset for the Centre Culturel Français at the upcoming Milan Design Furniture Fair.
"Oeil de sorcière" (Witch Eye) mirror by Ionna Vautrin
Says Morisset, "France has never known such an entrepreneurial frenzy in the design world. In barely 3 years, the French design market has seen more editors emerge, but also design galleries (YMER & MALTA, Next Level Galerie, Fat Galerie, Galerie BSL, Galerie Gosserez, etc...) than over the last ten years."
"Souviens toi que tu vas mourir" (Remember that you will die) chair by Pool
Petite Friture, Moustache, Superette, Specimen and Goodbye Edison, "punchy and easy to remember names chosen to stand out by the plethora of new French furniture and objects editors. Difficult to believe in such a sluggish economy, but this is reality..."
"Solo or as a duo, for the first time each of them is presenting completely new creations (free edition prototypes, small production and new editions) during the Milan Furniture Fair. Radically different from each other but united in a spirit of complicity and solidarity, these designers are outlining the new contours of the French domestic landscape, whilst their creations form a manifesto for the freedom of expression and to take initiative."
Works by A+A Cooren and Studio Nocc will also be on display at Nouvelle Vague from the 12th to 17th of April in Milan.
