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.

Mattia Bonetti
Swiss, b. 1952

Mattia Bonnetti is known for creating innovative pieces of furniture that are as much works of fine art as they are utilitarian objects. He employs a wide range of materials, often in surprising ways, as with “Denim Armchair” (2007), a beech wood chair upholstered with salvaged blue jeans and wrapped humorously with a leather belt. In “Drops Table” (2007), walnut wood and acrylic resin are integrated seamlessly to produce a visually striking yet fully functional dining table.
