A pair of “Lenotre” cabinets, in teak with gilt-bronze mounts; each with doors opening to an interior fitted with shelves. These cabinets were a special commission, designed for Neotu. Similar cabinets were made in the “Lenotre” model, but this pair is executed in a larger size than that of the typical “Lenotre” model.

About Elizabeth Garouste and Mattia Bonetti

Elizabeth Garouste (French, born 1949), a former costume designer, and Mattia Bonetti (Swiss, born 1952), a photographer, together form a Paris-based design team specializing in furniture that is at once experimental and elegant. Their work is marked by a use of classically tasteful materials, such as terra-cotta and wrought iron, as well as by the prevalence of sleek shapes and lines. “Our hope is to give people the feeling of freedom in the choice of forms,” they have said. “Good taste really bothers us a lot. What we care about is implanting doubt. We don’t have any rules.”
