Pierre Gonalons was born in Lyon and he became interested in Art History and the wealth of French heritage at a very young age. After graduating from the École Camondo in Paris, he opened his own studio at the age of 23. Through his creations for prestigious brands as well as for his own collections, he imposed his unique style and idea of space. Interior architect, designer, creative director and scenographer, he is fascinated by craftsmanship and traditional materials. Pierre Gonalons offers a minimalist approach to design imbued with references to pop culture and decorative arts.
In this collaboration with PINTON, Pierre Gonalons here again placed history at the heart of his work. First of all, his own story, which marks his creative work, then the story of each person, which influences our way of looking at a work, and finally, the history of arts, inherent to the choice of simple circles and squares, the former symbolising life, the latter, perfection. These shapes, side by side, and that even sometimes merge, evoke the idea of an encounter: the encounter between the artist and his work, between the work and those who contemplate it, between Pierre Gonalons and the Atelier PINTON!
