Description

Unveiled in 2010 in collaboration with Carpenters Workshop Gallery, Thierry Dreyfus's Hommage Table is an elegant and intriguing table made of two mirroring parts. The Hommage Table is a limited edition series of dark wood tables split by a golden scar, reminiscent of the light coming from an earthquake fracture.

"It all started from a technical yet minimal, constructive element: the IPN beam," the French light artist explains. "I chose a basic structural element, one that is usually hidden in the construction process, to structure the table and canalize the intensity that runs through it."

"On closer inspection, the table's giant crevasse - whose golden surface echoes the topography of the Himalayan chain - radiates so brightly that one looks for a light source. But there is none. 'Like a scar, the interstice never heals. The wound becomes precious, absorbs light, warms it up to concentrate and irradiate it,' Thierry Dreyfus adds."

Thierry Dreyfus

Born in France in 1960, renowned lighting designer and multi-disciplinary artist Thierry Dreyfus has built a significant body of work since its first assignment by the Strasbourg Opera House in 1979. Incepted in 1985, his eponymous atelier in Paris quickly became one of the leading artistic direction and lighting design studios in the world. Esteemed by the fashion industry, Dreyfus has directed the lighting scenography for the Fashion Week runways of designers including Diane Von Furstenberg, Comme des Garçons, Yves Saint-Laurent, Calvin Klein and Victoria Beckham among others. His expertise and his poetic use of light as a medium have earned Dreyfus numerous public art installations, including notable commissions by the cities of Paris, London and Shanghai, institutions such as the Chateau de Versailles, the Blouin Art Foundation in the UK, and hotels around the world.

In 2010, commissioned by the City of Paris to create an installation inside the cathedral Notre Dame de Paris, Dreyfus becomes the first artist ever authorized to install an art piece inside the historical monument. Known for the memorable experiences of his engaging installations and scenography, Dreyfus has established his mastery, sculpting, drawing and projecting light from or onto buildings, interior environments and objects for over forty years. While Light may count amongst the most intangible medium, the artist achieves to capture and share its essence as much through his large-scale, ephemeral installations as his personal work and signature collection of lamp editions. Available exclusively at Les Ateliers Courbet, Dreyfus has only recently made available his studio creations—small editions of lighting pieces and furniture reflecting the breadth and poetry of Dreyfus’ artistry, brought to an intimate and personal scale.
