Cristina Grajales Gallery is pleased to announce the second solo exhibition of furniture and lighting designer Christophe Côme, Material Transformation. Based in Paris, Côme creates sculptural furniture and lighting design through his manipulation of industrial materials, resulting in objects that are elegant and timeless.
Material Transformation will present a range of new, exquisitely crafted furniture and lighting pieces, including cabinets, screens, and coffee tables. In addition to his signature glass roundels, Côme will incorporate hand-glazed tiles, enameled copper, colored glass and gilded wood into his uniquely handcrafted wrought iron forms. The addition of these vividly colored and richly textured materials continues Côme’s tradition of juxtaposing the raw with the refined, all while maintaining the sophisticated, graceful style for which he is so well known.
Born in Normandy, France in 1965, Côme began his artistic career as a sculptor, training under Louis Derbe. Working primarily in cast bronze, Côme’s original creations were sculpture and jewelry until the mid-1990s, when his focus shifted to furniture forms. His work has a distinctive style of pure elegance that is balanced with a contemporary outlook. His sculptural perspective emanates through his furniture and lighting designs, elevating every day objects into works of art. In addition to numerous important private collections, Côme’s work is featured in Chanel boutiques in Paris, Beirut, and Shanghai.
Please join us for the opening reception at Cristina Grajales Gallery on Thursday, November 8th from 6PM-8PM.
