This year, Sophie Mainier-Jullerot will unveil a collection of emblematic pieces by the Garouste and Bonetti duo, edited by Néotù, such as the rainbow console or two tripods from their first collection, the Barbare col- lection. Garouste and Bonetti radically broke away from the functionalism and standardization of their time in favor of primitivism and elegance of the past, earning their production for Néotù gallery the nickname “new bar- barians”. These pieces bear witness to a time when they disrupted the codes of design together.
“The world of Garouste & Bonetti is not that of gentle dreamers inspired by nature or nostalgic spirits fond of grandeur, nor is it primitive or baroque, elegant or fashionable, classical or fanciful. Their world is that of the end of the 20th century, woven with the contradictions of social necessity as well as the power of money, the plea- sures of communication as well as the need for a new Thebaid, seduction as well as intelligence” as highligh- ted by Pierre Staudenmeyer.
