Garouste & Bonetti

Elizabeth Garouste is born in 1949 in Paris and Mattia Bonetti born in 1952 in Lugano (Swiss). They join together in 1980 to devote to the creation of pieces of furniture and interior decoration. They begin with the Palace when Fabrice Eamer ask them to create the decoration. Then the Néotu Gallery edits them quickly. Baroque and barbarian, their furniture surprises and is constituted by heteroclite and unusual materials such as rocks, hammered bronze, raffia, leather, skin, logs and glass… They invent the “barbarian” fashion. They work then in achievements in reference with the Middle Ages, Africa, passing by the poetry of Cocteau, the Venetian baroque and the neo-classicism. Also edited by the galleries “En attendant les Barbares”, David Gill, Kréo, Lou Fagotin, Daum, Baguès. They separate in 2002. Mattia Bonetti continues the creation of pieces of furniture and he is regularly shown in many shows and galleries.
