Back-to-back with Galerie kreo, Demisch Danant took a more theatrical approach, swathing the booth with a coat of black paint and covering the floor with a memorable green carpet. “The decoration comes from an interior that Michel Boyer
designed for a lobby of a building in Paris in 1972. The desk, which is a unique piece, was actually made for the lobby of this building,” explains co-director Stephane Danant. “I think it’s extremely important to have an environment that contextualizes the work. Of course, we also like showing design this way; Suzanne and I are into architecture, so a lot of our inspiration comes from those intersections.” The booth features two main storylines. The first is a dazzling display of stainless steel furniture from the 1960s and ’70s by heavy hitters like Boyer and Maria Pergay
. The second, and perhaps the more intriguing of the two, is their small assemblage of lamps produced by Verre Lumière, a French lighting company founded in 1968. Jean Pierre Vitrac
’s Flower Lamp
(1970) is a favorite amongst the bouquet.
