Vincent Dubourg

Vincent Dubourg 44

Vincent Dubourg’s sculptural furniture creates contemporary allusions to traditional methods of cabinet making, evoking a nostalgic sense of the familiar while simultaneously distorting these antiquated forms with his fresh approach to materials and technique. He poetically fuses the crafts of glass blowing, wood-bending and metal-casting to deconstruct our perceptions of simple forms and breathe new life into the past. CWG has proudly presented Dubourg in London since its inception, with exhibitions including Design Povera 2007 and ‘Inside’ in 2011.’

The Carpenters Workshop Gallery describes Vincent Dubourg’s sculptural furniture as “contemporary allusions to traditional methods of cabinet making, evoking a nostalgic sense of the familiar while simultaneously distorting these antiquated forms with his fresh approach to materials and technique. He poetically fuses the crafts of glass blowing, wood-bending and metal-casting to deconstruct our perceptions of simple forms and breathe new life into the past” and we could’t agree more.

Vincent Dubourg gets inspiration in both city and nature. His creations are a fusion of furniture, architecture and sculpture, and a challenge to our imagination. This is a bronze creation called Soufle d’un desert – the breath of the desert. It’s kind of a gorgeous messy look.

Dubourg describes his pieces as a fusion of furniture, architecture and sculpture. They strike a careful balance between the practical and beautiful. He uses traditional furniture making techniques such as glass blowing, wood-bending, and metal casting as a means of transforming simple materials and found objects. His distinct style is at once nostalgic and avant-garde.
