Heads of a movement followed by many other designers, they restored the use of craftsmanship and noble materials. Ironsmiths, bronze founders, gilders, cabinetmakers, ceramists, glassmakers, all participate in this creative renewal.  They were awarded the Creator of the Year award at the Salon du Meuble in 1991 and are exhibited in several museums  including: the Victoria & Albert Museum, Centre Georges Pompidou, Musée des Arts Décoratifs de Bordeaux and many others.

They separated in 2001, after a final joint exhibition for En Attendant les Barbares.

Their creations have become, over time, classics sought after by collectors. The gallery continues to edit their pieces, furniture and lamps, the artisanal mode of production allowing a bespoke approach, defining dimensions and finishes. In this way, reinstating with the great tradition of the French Decorative Arts.

On February 2015 Elizabeth Garouste had her first solo exhibition in the United States at Ralph Pucci. Elizabeth joined Ralph Pucci in 2014. Mattia Bonetti also continues creating wonderful pieces under his name.
