ASEAN KEY DESTINATIONS
WOOD EXPRESSIONS EXHIBITION
BY GILLES CAFFIER
AT SOFITEL SO BANGKOK
GILLES CAFFIER’s creations are humanistic. They are born from the hand and nature, without rejecting technology. His lines are pure, sensual, sometimes unexpected. He plays with the nature of materials, exploiting contrasts and diversions. Leather becomes metal, rough becomes soft, minimal becomes exuberant. He plays with beauty and its natural marks, embellishing case by case, sophisticating the exception. Each piece is the result of meticulous work, and a unique mixing of knowhow and permanent questioning. A large part of his collection are limited editions.
Gilles CAFFIER gives a second life to a few interesting wood pieces which have been cut, partially burnt, plunged in water or deep earth for years. Coating them, burning them, regenerating their rich textures and reinterpreting their silhouette.
Exclusive Wood Expressions Exhibition at Street Lobby (G Floor) features a few interesting art pieces which reinterpreted the silhouette of wood with mood installation in the water pond emphasizing the monumental mineral facade of Sofitel So Bangkok from now until 31st July 2014.
