Hubert Le Gall‘s work is a bold combination of sophisticated and playful. His art furniture creations are enchanting.
Inspired by the likes of Salvador Dali, Jean Cocteau, the Surrealists and Max Ernst, Le Gall introduces humor and beauty into everyday life. You can now decorate your home with unique pieces inspired by regular things in life and see how beautiful they can look when worked the best way.
Self-taught as an artist and sculptor before delving into design, he uses classic materials to create pieces that inspire laughter and enchantment, while being meticulously crafted. A fixed star on the international design scene, he exhibits and sells his work globally.
It’s a universe where different fairy tales have come to life and proceed to dialogue with one another. The vision is playful, the shapes unusual, the proportions oversized, the materials luxurious, and there’s always the recognizable hint of childhood. The works are at once familiar and unfamiliar: there are chamomile commodes, rabbit ear armchairs, dog lights, bull cabinets, sheep dressing tables, giraffe chimneys, raindrop mirrors and skull sculptures. Everything is possible in Hubert’s fantastical world.
Le Gall surrounds himself with creations stemming from his overflowing imagination, which lie somewhere between contemporary art and decorative object. Viewers are often left wondering if it’s a sculpture or a piece of furniture, only to realize that it really doesn’t matter in the end for Le Gall himself refuses to choose between the labels of artist and designer. He admits, “I don’t see myself as a designer because I have more an artistic approach than a design approach. But do I see myself as an artist? I don’t know because I make decorative art; I don’t paint. I always say that I am a creator of furniture. I am more an artist than a designer. That’s why I’m more interested in the world of art than the world of decoration.”
