Gilles & Boissier is the meeting of two rich and contrasting aesthetic approaches. Rigorous and eloquent, classic and modern, minimalist and baroque, their style emerges as simultaneously powerful, dramatic and narrative. It never confines itself to one genre, often through contrast, always giving spaces a poetic dimension.
In collaboration with POUENAT Ferronnier, Gilles & Boissier give a voice to the metal. It expresses itself, twists itself, winds, stretches and folds; like an animal, it lives; it has a contrasting surface and underside, which toys even further with the backlighting and the effects of the light.
Pouenat Ferronnier was founded in 1880, in Auvergne, France. It started out crafting wrought iron artistic creations and metalwork for buildings. The company then decided to apply its know-how to the development and production of furniture and rapidly evolved into a proper furniture and lighting editor. Today, some of the most talented interior designers create for Pouenat: Tristan Auer, François Champsaur, Gilles & Boissier or, more recently, Charles Zana. This specificity is Pouenat’s cornerstone: collections are designed by interior designers for their peers. Whether standard or bespoke, the products are always hand-made in France. Today, Pouenat keeps on accompanying ornamental projects. Committed to excellence, the company is regularly commissioned to work on various prestigious projects such as the Plazza Athénée in Paris, the Balmain and Dior boutiques and even the Château de Versailles. In 2009, the “Living Heritage Company” (Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant, or EPV) label, awarded by the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Employment recognizes and confirms the excellence and rarity of its know-how.
