13 Mar Alfons & Damián Presents Agostini – an Iconic French Designer
The interior design showroom Alfon & Damián will host an exhibition featuring a sample collection of the French artist Félix Agostini’s reissued designs, from today until April 28, in their gallery dedicated to design, furniture and art objects.
The renowned manufacturer Maison Charles has collaborated on this innovative presentation with the French artist’s daughter, Dominique Agostini, to reissue the twelve selected Agostini pieces, a collection of nine different lamps and three tables.
Félix Agostini (1910-1980) was well known for his abstract lighting and furniture designs and the bronze and gilded bronze sculptures that all fit into both classical and contemporary environments. He worked with these metals in the hope of creating mythological characters and animals to reflect his dreams, rage and passion with their subtle interpretation into the organic forms of his lamps and furniture. Elegant and harmonic, a modern spirit for their time, they later on became pieces of ritualistic value and worship.
This exhibition shows the philosophy behind the studio of Alfons Tost and Damián Sánchez, and their ambition to draw attention to the importance of reissuing an author’s original work and preserving the architect’s historic legacy of design.
