This panorama of the best of international contemporary design features emblematic works by the iconic designers of the Galerie kreo.
A retrospective of groundbreaking creativity, this volume offers an overview of contemporary design from the innovative Galerie kreo where, for the past twenty years, internationally renowned designers have produced, exhibited, and distributed their works. Founded in 1999 by Clémence and Didier Krzentowski as a place for contemporary designers to experiment, the Paris- and London-based galleries today remain firmly rooted in modernity.
Pieces produced with Galerie kreo by the world's most exciting contemporary designers--from Marc Newson, Hella Jongerius, and Jaime Hayon to Virgil Abloh, Konstantin Grcic, and Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec--are presented alongside pivotal moments in design history. An interview with the gallery's founders, an illustrated retrospective of more than one hundred exhibitions, and tributes by Galerie kreo's key companions weave together the story of this unique design laboratory, where a culture of innovation inspires new solutions in form and technique, and where important designers and their emblematic works have charted contemporary-design history.
