Armand-Albert Rateau et Gunta Stölzl
This is the executive office of the Césaré Foundation in Tel Aviv. I proposed a decorative set based on a mixture of the French decorator "Rateau" from the 1930s and the weaver "Gunta Stölzl", a student and teacher at the Bauhaus school in Germany in the same years. In the metal facings, there will be inlays of some of the drawings of Gunta Stölzl's famous carpet, as well as a faithful copy made by the "Ets Diurne" in Paris of the same carpet created in 1925 in Germany. The wenge layout is based on the rigour and symmetry so respected by the "Rateau" decorator. For the fronts of the silver leaf pedestals, I was inspired by the famous "silver lacquers" widely used in the 1930s. At the time, acids were used to bleach silver sheets. Too dangerous, and especially with today's standards, I only applied a matt bleached glaze to reproduce my drawings in large format.
