Philippe Hiquily, an erotic metal sculptor and furniture designer.

The French modernist sculptor, Philippe Hiquily, worked for a full decade creating abstract figurative sculpture before turning his attention in 1960 to making furniture from his favorite sculptural material: metal. His mobiliers are every bit as beautifully crafted, and as overtly erotic, as his sculptures which take as their point of departure the human (female) body in sexually ecstatic positions.
