Category: Design & Art

Home / Design & Art

Some architects and designers will be forever remembered for how they pushed boundaries and influenced the way we conceive of space – both inside and out. Other artists, painters and sculptors have changed the conception and the very definition of art. In this desire to shed a bright light on the arts which inspire each other, Icon-Icon devotes this category to icons of art and design. Whether we are talking about the artists themselves, or their creations that have become iconic … Or, better yet, innovative objects that have served to nourish and then deliver their innovative art …

Devoted to key pieces in the history of the arts, literature and creation in general, this category aims to clarify the link between art, fashion and luxury. We think here of revolutionary works in the field where poignant marks of interior design serve as a reference.

Among his transcendent personalities of art and design, the figure Le Corbusier is obviously first in many ways. Among its cult pieces, the LC4 anchors the creation of Le Corbusier as a pioneer of the modernist movement. After its design in 1928, the LC4 almost instantly became the archetype of the lounge chair.

Another important piece in this area – designed in 1956 by husband and wife designer duo Charles & Ray Eames, the Eames Lounge Chair has become a design classic. One of the most important pieces of furniture of the 20th century combines design and luxury – the wood veneer shell and leather upholstery have been designed to offer a warm and modern look!

These are the kinds of topics Icon-Icon covers in this category. An Art and Design category that does not forget to celebrate its impact on fashion and luxury.

In this Design and Art category, the ready-mades of Marcel Duchamp rub shoulders with the works of Pierre & Gilles, the history of the Leica camera, iconic lights, the Speakers Phantom by Devialet or even the latest creations from the house of Christofle. … it is not rather a question of identifying the key works for sale at major contemporary art fairs, like the FIAC or Art Paris Art Fair. In some articles orchestrated as SPECIALS, Icon-Icon still offers an enlightened look at specialist literature – beautiful books to read and reread to delve into the current history of art and design!

Canvases by Francis Bacon and Jean Michel Basquiat, passing by Corbusier’s chairs or Balloon Dogs by Jeff Koons and canvases by Peter Doig, about which White Canoe says a lot… Icon-Icon strives to recount the impact and the context of the blossoming of the creativity of true geniuses of art and design, to better illuminate the transdisciplinary approach of these artists … By never losing sight of their impact on fashion and luxury – by Nicolas Ghesquière who, for Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton, has drawn thousands of times into the world of design and architecture, including the legendary Yves Saint Laurent… The first couturier to have introduced Mondrian on the podium!

Here is what will be given to the readers to discover.
