Midas Touch. #elizabethgaeta the French designer, Elisabeth Garouste and Swiss photographer, Mattia Bonetti #mattiabonetti allied their talents, in 1980, to create innovative crafted design far from industrial production. Most of their creations are made of unusual materials such as terracotta, bronze and wrought iron, privileging sleek and curved lines.
#Throwback to @masterpiecelondon last month at the beautifully curated @davidgillgallery booth. At first glance, one sees a chest of drawers and a mirror, but after closer examination do you notice the intricate detail of @barnabybarford's porcelain work and the use of shimmering rock crystal in Mattia Bonetti's chest. Gotta love Contemporary Design!

I don’t know if you can call my work only “design” or only “art,” it is something in between, where there is a special space.”
