This Saturday, Parisian designer Vincent Dubourg's new exhibition opens at Carpenters Workshop Gallery with a brunch! I first encountered Dubourg's work at Design Miami where his exploding wall-mounted shelving unit was one of the more exciting pieces from the fair. Continuing with his deconstructed theme, the centerpiece for his new solo show, "Buffet Nouvelle Zeland Rencontre des Pôles" presents a familiar form in an unexpectedly violent deconstruction.
Dubourg describes his pieces as a fusion of furniture, architecture and sculpture. They strike a careful balance between practical and beautiful. He uses traditional furniture making techniques such as blowing glass, wood-bending and metal casting as a means of transforming simple materials and found objects. See more of Dubourg's work after the jump.
