WEEKLY WRAP UP | OCT. 3-10, 2014


This week on the blog we discovered the designers Antoine Philippon and Jacqueline Lecoq; saw the first exhibition at Del Vaz Projects; listened Dayvan Cowboy from Boards of Canada; visited the new show of Mark Leckey at Wiels: Lending Enchantment to Vulgar Materials and the show of Jonathan Binet and Martin Laborde at Gaudel de Stampa: Yellow Cabin Saturday Night Remittent Fever.



Last week I passed by Jousse entreprise gallery rue de Seine, and I discovered these two designers.
I was really impressed. Furnitures are functional, convenient and elegant in a minimal style.
Antoine Philippon began as a student of the Ecole Boulle and Jacqueline Lecoq attended L’Ecole nationale superieure des arts decoratifs. While they first met in 1954, their extraordinary collaboration would last until Philippon’s death in 1995.
Through the 1950s and 60s they presented regularly at the Salon des Art menagers and Salon des artistes decorateurs of which Philippon was president from 1970-72. They participated at the Expositions universelles de Bruxelles in 1958 and Montreal 1967, as well as collaborating on numerous commissions for the Mobilier national.
Here some pictures of their work.
