FUR PLAY by Sacha Walckhoff in collaboration with Pouenat & Terzakou for the Galerie Gosserez
Metal and fur – a collection born from the desire to juxtapose two incredibly sensual materials that are fundamentally opposite. Fur in “geometric forms", malleable metal, playing with hot and cold… Sacha Walckhoff used opposing textures to tame each other, bringing them together to create pieces that lie half-way between sculpture and furniture. Heat blued steel responds to the warmth of the astrakhan hues which are brushed for texture, and the brass of the spheres is polished to give each piece a brilliant golden shine. The exceptional savoir-faire of the Pouenat* metal artists and the Terzakou furrier collaborated with Walckhoff to bring shape, volume and equilibrium to the Desk, Cube and Easy Chair. Without allowing for one material to overpower another, the final result was a collection of 'fur play'!
