Mirrored Sideboard Loreley by Mendini, Garouste and Bonetti


The French interior designer Elisabeth Garouste (1946) and the Swiss born photographer Mattia Bonetti (1952) teamed up in 1981. Their collaboration, which lasted for more than two decades, turned out to be very successful. Within the context of 1980s Post Modernism they managed to develop a highly personal yet typical French style, which could perhaps best be characterized as New Romantic. Their designs are refined and always exclusive: either one offs or limited batch productions. As opposed to their contemporaries, Garouste and Bonetti hardly ever referred to Modernism in their work, but clearly relied on the idiom of outstanding decorators like Jean Royere and Diego Giacometti. While from a 21st century perspective, one could argue that Garouste and Bonetti paved the way for several contemporary designers. In 1999 Garouste and Bonetti were requested by the German high end label Anthologie Quartett to join forces with Alessandro Mendini. Together with this godfather of Italian Post Modern design they conceived the Loreley range of custom made cabinets. Covered with mirror glass (also at the backside) and decorated with screen printed leaves and branch-like handles in cast metal, this design reflects on the tension between artisanal and industrial production. Dimensions: Height (88 cm), length (210,5 cm), depth (65,5 cm).
