In the collection designed especially for Galerie Gosserez, Piergil Fourquié explores the concept of balance, applied to the design of everyday objects: static balance; dynamic balance; the balance of systems, eco-systems; the balance of bodies and to pursue the metaphor, the balance of minds, to achieve serenity. A design which blends technical choices (materials, overhang) with a refined finish.
From 3rd March to 2nd April 2011, Galerie Gosserez is presenting “l’Etreinte” by Elise Gabriel, a series of furniture (table, chair and lights) whose main theme is researching Zelfo, a new material composed of cellulose* whose great propensity to reduce, to model itself on curvilinear shapes and to embrace the material, allows it to fit tightly round and to assemble together the elements on which it dries. The extremely radical formatting therefore brings to the forefront all of the material’s mechanical, plastic and symbolic power.
Lady Led by Omri BARZEEV (2010) at Galerie Gosserez (Paris). Combining materials in a new innovative way, the Israeli designer Omri Barzeev created the Lady Led desk lamp.

Galerie Gosserez is exhibiting the German designer Valentin Loellamnn’s M&Mme collection, sensitive work about material and its power of evocation, the narrative mode of which also draws on a certain Dutch design: the contrast of nature and technical subjects, past and present. The collection has been conceived like a family led to develop over the course of new additions. Galerie Gosserez therefore invites you to witness these first three pieces at the beginning of a dynasty: a bench; a cabinet with a door and a cabinet with drawers produced in wood and polyester. Pieces of furniture to consider like the start of an alphabet, whose future generations will evolve as inevitable genetic branches dictate.
