Rare Set of Four Garouste & Bonetti ‘Palace’ Dining Chairs, 1980

$19,408.91per set

About

This is an incredibly rare set of 4 dining chairs by Elizabeth Garouste & Mattia Bonetti, model Palace, made in white cream painted solid oak. Garouste & Bonetti began their collaboration and gained global recognition for their interior design of the Paris nightclub Le Palace in 1979, when Fabrice Eamer ask them to create the decoration, and these chairs were specifically designed for the restaurant Le Privilege in Le Palace nightclub. We newly upholstered them using Italian Rubelli pattern fabric model Venezia Beat reference 30264-007. This is a unique opportunity to purchase a part of modern design history. Reference: Stephen Calloway, François Baudot and Gérard-Georges Lemaire, Elizabeth Garouste et Mattia Bonetti, Marseille, 1990, page 52-54. Garouste & Bonetti duo were celebrated for inventing a new Baroque and barbarian romanticism. They became recognised as international players in the art and design market from the early 1980s to the late 1990s. Their furniture is inventive, unconventional, subtle, constituted by heteroclite and unusual materials, in reference to the Middle Ages and Africa, revisiting the Venetian baroque and the neo-classicism. As they once stated about their work : ‘Our hope is to give people the feeling of freedom in the choice of forms. Good taste really bothers us a lot. What we care about is implanting doubt. We don’t have any rules.’
