In the world of design, where boundaries are constantly being challenged, the work of French designer Thierry Dreyfus has been heralded as intriguing and magnificent. Or perhaps I should call him a wizard rather than a designer? Because as one of the most celebrated lighting artists today, Dreyfus has become known for public lighting installations commissioned by international cities, major cultural institutions, hotels and the Fashion Couture industry. We have seen his lighting scenography for the runways of Diane Von Furstenberg, Comme des Garçons, Yves Saint-Laurent, Calvin Klein, and Victoria Beckham, but also in historic monuments, interior environments and objects. Now the New-York-City- based Master Craftsmen’s Gallery, Atelier Courbet has opened a solo show of Dreyfus’ limited edition pieces, which demonstrate his creative mastery of light at an intimate and personal scale. I particularly look forward to seeing his Homage table, a series of dark wood tables split by a golden scar, reminiscent of the light coming from an earthquake fracture (above and below). The show will be on view for one month: September 17 through October 17.
