For his first solo exhibition in London, the designer plays on the ambivalence of the clown, a figure which has been extensively investigated in theatre, literature, art and cinema.
The 10 clown vases are produced by the prestigious Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres, the historical reference of French porcelain, established since 1740, each piece is unique and painted by hand. The side tables and consoles are composed of fine marble.
Galerie kreo produces limited edition pieces by the most important contemporary designers and operates as a ‘design laboratory’ dedicated to research.
