Gueule de Bois

Opening Thursday 07th January 2016, from 6.00 pm at Galerie Houg Lyon

From Jan. 07th to Feb. 06th, 2016


Galerie Houg invites the duo of French designers, Ludovic Austry and Emmmanuel Berson, founders of Gueule de Bois (french play on words meaning « Hangover » and « Wooden Maw »), to present their latest creations during an exhibition to be held in our Lyon gallery space: 43 Rue Auguste Comte 69002 Lyon. 

 

 

          Ludovic Austry and Emmanuel Bersonare two young designers. Nearly by their jubilee if we combine both of them, they have the will to incarnate the revival of French craftsmanshipin the landscape of contemporary design. Wood, coming from Jura forest, is central to project Gueule de Bois which claims as simpleness, both in design and in the furniture production process. It is this leitmotiv that led them to use this noble material and especially to work with a native artisan, like them, from the Loire Valley. Gueule de Bois released its first collection of wooden furniture in 2015. It is quickly noticed by the simplicity and sobriety of massive parts, raw and warm, which by their varietal names invite us to share a glass of wine or two.
