”Preserving the Legacy – Pierre Paulin & Marcel Gascoin”
Institut français and GUBI are proud to join forces for 3daysofdesign to highlight newly reissued pieces by legendary French designers Pierre Paulin and Marcel Gascoin. The furniture installation will be featured in the salons of the French Embassy to emphasize the influential role both designers had on the post-war years in France, where Paulin and Gascoin, forward-thinking for their time and with strong Scandinavian aesthetics, revolutionized everyday furniture.
The French Embassy is located in the neoclassical Palais Thott, richly decorated with French patrimonial objects such as tapestries from Les Gobelins, 18th and 19th-century furniture, and artworks previously displayed in French castles and official buildings.
