Preface to the Monograph “Guillaume Piéchaud, Orfèvre du Meuble” (Goldsmith of Furniture)
Presented for the first time at the LOFT Gallery in 1994, the sculptor-designer Guillaume Piéchaud knew how to mark the history of the Gallery with his unique sensitivity. After more than twenty-five years of collaboration, we are pleased to devote a large-scale exhibition to Guillaume Piéchaud and celebrate the publication of his first Monograph “Guillaume Piéchaud, Orfèvre du Meuble”(Goldsmith of Furniture) at Éditions LOFT. On an occasion of this exhibition, we will bring together the artist’s iconic works but also sublime completely new pieces, Guillaume Piéchaud will be honored in our two spaces at 3bis and 4 rue des Beaux-Arts as well as in the courtyard of 3bis. Many events will also be offered during the period : the presentation of the luxury print of the limited edition Monograph, signature sessions, meetings with the artist and guided tours. To keep up with current events and allow access to the works to as many people as possible, the exhibition will also be accessible as an online viewing on the Gallery’s website.
