The Gallery R’Pure is inviting the public to discover the "French Cancan" lighting in a unique scenography created by the designer himself, Jean-Marc Gady from March 25 to May 19.
The Gallery R'Pure, always looking to promote poetry and “story telling” design, rarity and savoirfaire, has given the french designer “carte blanche” to create a whimsical lighting design.
"French Cancan" is a light installation composed of several pleated lampshades joined together forming a sculptural wheel. The purpose of this audacious lamp is to play with the traditional lampshades and to make them dance in an astonishing round which evocates the French Cancan.
Acclaimed for his work as a product designer and scenographer, Jean-Marc Gady has been awarded many grants and has figured in numerous international design publications. Born in Paris, he began his solo career designing furniture, lighting and tableware for Ligne Roset and Liv’it. In 2002, he joined Louis Vuitton as art director for display windows and events. He worked all over the world with LV for four years before setting up his own practice in 2005.
‘Suggest not impose’ would be a good motto for Jean-Marc Gady.
Gallery R’Pure debuted in New York in May 2007. The showroom promotes the creative vision of the R’Pure collective of designers with R’Pure Collection, a line of furniture and objects, as well as the work of emerging designers and artists that share the same artistic approach to design. The gallery welcomes interior designers, design lovers, collectors, people looking for pieces that will add some poetry to an interior –objects that they won’t see everywhere. This space is a stop for discovering new and exclusive pieces, for allowing the surprise for being seduced.
