After having studied finance in his youth, the artist and designer Hubert De Gall is now known as one of the most original voices in the French design world. He applies his eclecticism to furnishings, accessories, design objects, jewelry, and installations. Le Gall is inspired by traditional shapes, and transforms them into contemporary translations of flora and fauna, each with a touch of tongue-in-cheek. In his Montmarte altelier, which formerly belonged to the painter Pierre Bonnard, he creates pieces from varied materials. His collection of bronze jewelry were inspired by nature, revealing his refined skill of debunking the decorative component of the material using a vaguely playful approach. The museum/shop Mudec in Milan is selling a selection of his pieces, including the entertaining, flower pot shaped Pot des fleurs.
