For the exhibition “French Cancan”, running until October 15 at Forum Diffusion in Paris, Lisa White and Gluxing have created a floral installation entitled “Chrysanthemum Explosion”. Completely unexpected, chrysanthemums burst like floral ammunition from Jean Marc Gady’s AMMO vases. Vibrant hybrids with names like “Energy” and “Vesuvio”, they have taken years to design and produce by the master hybridists and growers of Holland. Historically, the chrysanthemum is a symbol of the sun and of power (the emperors, or ‘sun kings’, of Japan would sit on chrysanthemum-covered thrones) and the rays of these power flowers offer a stunning display of organic pyrotechnics.

Jean Marc Gady and Gallery R’Pure will be presenting ‘French Cancan’ at Forum Diffusion from 17 september 2009 until 10 october 2009 in Paris. Three new pieces illustrate his gift for juggling the codes of luxury labels and using traditional savoir-faire. With a saucy subtext and a Gallic touch, ‘French Cancan’ is a light installation that plays on movement, accumulation and the side-tracking of basics. It suggests a peek up dancers’ skirts in elegant design.
Jean Marc Gady laid out an ephemeral open air terrace looking across the bay of Kowloon to launch the new Louis Vuitton store there. His ephemeral architecture was articulated by a gigantic bar that ran from inside to outside, to give guests the benefit of the superb panorama.

Accessory line for MOET & CHANDON
This fresh Moet & Chandon service accessory range is constituted of buckets, drinks cooler, bowl, candlesticks and platters. Jean Marc Gady plays with the strong contrast between a deep black varnished and the polished stainless-steel and pewter metallic reflections. The set’s overall coherence is assured by the formal revival of a lightly bell-shaped rim and truncated content in each item. Specifically dedicated to bars and clubs, the seal “Night” is proposed in a highly visual identifying version thanks to a magnetic luminous base addition preventing the bottle of being out of sight.
