Internationally renowned artist Bernar Venet continues to challenge himself with a wholly original, fresh collection of furniture.
Although designed to satisfy a non-artistic, purely domestic need, furniture fits naturally into the range of Venet's creative activities.
Using a blowtorch to cut thick sheets of laminated, crude steel, he sets up a contrast between solidity and fragility, emphasizing rawness and indestructibility.Venet's furniture reflects the artistic vision he has developed throughout his oeuvre.
He emphasizes functional simplicity and a plainness underpinned by notions of utilitarianism.
