Martin Scekely at Pompidou

Martin Scekely has a great retrospective a the Centre Pompidou this winter. 
As a designer Szekely has two different focuses: designing furniture and objects for museums, private collectors and manufacturers, and working on major industrial projects. Pieces by Martin Szekely belong to the permanent collections of the world’s major museums, including the Centre Georges Pompidou and Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, the Cooper Hewitt Museum in New York and the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. Szekely, who enjoys rethinking the concept of each object, has a special talent for working with imposing industrial constraints. Very careful to respect technical specifications, he works with materials as diverse as carbon fiber, crystal, Corian, silver, resin and wood. For his works fo to Gallerie Kreo.


I also loved his work for Christofle.
