Elizabeth Garouste
French, b. 1946
Follow

Although she worked from architecture to set design to furniture, French designer Elizabeth Garouste is best known through her collaboration with Swiss designer Mattia Bonetti, begun in 1980 to create pieces of furniture and interior décor. The designers made pieces using untraditional materials such as rocks, hammered bronze, raffia, leather, skin, logs, and glass, yielding furnishings and designs for tables, chairs, and interior spaces. Her work has often been referred to as “barbarian”, referring to the breaking of conventional aesthetics by combining the influences of the Middle Ages and Neoclassicism.
