Béton Brut present David Horan - Paper

Wed-Sat: 10-6pm; Sun: 10-4pm

Paper designed exclusively with Béton Brut gallery, sees David Horan as a modern decoupeur, layering handmade Japanese paper to create a new applied ‘vegan vellum’. This exhibition marks the inaugural furniture and lighting collection of the London-based designer.

Informed by the French craft traditions of decoupage and Japanese Mingei movement, Horan wraps a series of original works – seating, a coffee table and a screen ‘Paper’ was conceived via rigorous material experimentation in Horan’s London workshop. It was an exercise in de-composition and re-composition, of ripping it up, and starting again. For the ‘Vellum’ coffee table, screen and lounge chairs, Horan experimented with a combination of Kozuki-Mingeshi paper, lacquering itto a mirror finish or sealed matte.
