French designer Vincent Dubourg, whose designs introduce motion to stationary furniture, will present his work at a solo exhibition at Carpenters Workshop Gallery. The exhibition opens November 2.
Dubourg’s work is highly sculptural and deals with the confrontation of materials such as wood, steel and aluminum. Subverting classic functional forms, Dubourg offers a new perspective to furniture design. His style often evokes a feeling of familiarity, which is then distorted by Dubourg’s use of unfamiliar materials and techniques.
For more information on his exhibition, which runs until December 23, read more at Carpenters Workshop Gallery.
