Hubert Le Gall, a Parisian designer and sculpter, will also be debuting in Milan during the Salone del Mobile. His recent work be on display and for sale in the Mudec boutique; Le Gall will be presented in an informal conversation on April 15. He was born in 1961, and having studied finance, decided to turn to the arts. His works are prevalently made of his preferred material, bronze, and range from furniture to jewellery. Echoing past styles, Hubert makes functional, figurative furniture. Of those that stand out, the phytomorphic series including the Pot (vase) armchair and the Goutte d’herbe (grass drop). His Parisian Atlier, having once belonged to the painter Pierre Bonnard, is located in the Montmarte area. After a period of focusing on flora, he has turned to poetic fauna, using a large selection of materials, including wood, resin, and ceramic. His unique creations are fit for private homes or public spaces, like the dining room in Paris’s commune. He has also been working on exhibition spaces, like the “Malinconia: genio e follia in Occidente” at the Grand Palais di Parigi in 2005, and in 2014, at the Museo Jacquemart, “De Watteau a Fragonard. Le fetes galantes”, and in October, 2015 L’oeil du Flaneur per Hermes. In 2015 he presented the luxe buffet, Swipp at the Miami Art Basel along with “Le Calendrier de verre”, 12 glass sculptures created for the brand, Ruinart.
