In need of a pre Milan design fix, we headed to Hoxton Square today to check out Parisian sculptor Thomas Lemut’s new show at Gallery FUMI. Entitled OST OUEST, Lemut’s new collection is comprised of six exquisitely crafted limited-edition furniture pieces made in collaboration with the cabinet maker Johannes Eckart. We were especially taken with Sledge Deck Chair, which nicely balances natural and industrial materials mixing rows of different woods with stainless steel finishes. All of the pieces are both luxurious and humble, celebrating the purity of material and craft.
Gallery FUMI is also an incredible tranquil, light filled space hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Shoreditch, so check it out next time you are in the area, though phone ahead to book an appointment.
Gallery FUMI 16 Hoxton Square, London N1 6NT. Until 15 May.
