Bruno Moinard, du trait à la lumière
The list of his works make one’s head turn: from the Plaza Athénée in Paris to a hotel boutique in Chengdu, a 1000 sq. meter apartment in London and the wine cellars of Château Latour. Bruno Moinard worked throughout a wide part of the globe, which seems almost easy when we realize he supervised the re-lifting of 340 Cartier boutiques! He had the best schooling, with Andrée Putman, and has a true science pf colored harmonies and of noble materials. Used bronze, silver iroko, polished pewter, golden sycomore, pleated staff, black laquer. One could almost write a poem in the style of Blaise Cendrars on this luxury exoticism. The book makes a census of some ten of his works that are widely and well illustrated. For your eyes only, for the book is inaccessible for most mortals.
