DESIGN & DECORATION S02 EP01 Sevres Porcelain Manufactory, Paris France

CEO David Cameo

The Sèvres company was founded in 1738.[1] In 1740, the Vincennes manufactory was created, with the support of Louis XV and Madame de Pompadour. In 1756, the factory moved to Sèvres, near Madame de Pompadour's Bellevue Palace. This new building, 130 meters longer, was built between 1753 to 1756 with Lindet as architect. It became a royal factory in 1759. Jean-Claude Chambellan Duplessis served as artistic director of the Vincennes porcelain manufactory and its successor at Sèvres from 1748 to his death in 1774. Louis-Simon Boizot was director between 1774 and 1800; Alexandre Brogniart director between 1800 to 1847; and Henri Victor Regnault director beginning in 1854.

DILMOS

Sergio Riva

Dilmos was founded in 1980 as an exhibition space for designer furniture. The articles selected were intended to be the most representative examples of modern design, side by side with furniture made by firms representing the contemporary style of the eighties. There was also an area for holding exhibitions and the result was that Dilmos started interacting more directly with the world of design, personally choosing which designers to work with and their articles. This commitment was the fruit of a growing awareness of the value and poetical significance of objects: a profound interest that led Dilmos to deal essentially with articles distinguished by a strong communicative and narrative force. Since 1985, when an exhibition dedicated to Alessandro Mendini was held, Dilmos has increasingly tended to choose designers and articles that fully express a philosophy where each piece of furniture is a representation and at the same time a key to the designerÌs deeper thoughts, a way of communicating and interacting with the world. Hence an object that communicates and not merely functional but not just a symbolic object-subject, a mute emblem of our hyper-communicating society either: this is the aim of DilmosÌs research, which is constantly working, debating and striving to outdo itself. No uniform stylistic design can be seen in the articles found at Dilmos; the consistency cannot be seen in the designers whose work has been displayed over these years but rather in the interactions and the mutual desire to treat the articles animating a home or a space as elements that virtually receive its thoughts and, through their great narrative ability, transmit its poetry and intentions. The languages of the designers are therefore many, because the gestures and thoughts of each one are many, but that does not mean that they are incommunicable. This is the thinking behind some of Dilmos Ìs experiences while working to make it possible for languages and poetries to communicate with each other.

COLNAGHI

Jeremy Howard

If Paul Colnaghi had emigrated to America in 1783, as Benjamin Franklin advised him to do, London would be without one of its oldest and most celebrated Galleries. Instead, Colnaghi went to work for Anthony Torre, whose father had established businesses in Paris and London. Anthony Torre's London premises enjoyed a reputation for stocking the finest wares of celebrated engravers. When Paul Colnaghi joined him in 1783, they soon moved to a superior address at 132 Pall Mall, and by 1788 the younger Colnaghi had taken control of the business. Paul Colnaghi was to raise the small business to a status unsurpassed in the art-dealing world. There were difficulties in the beginning; as a result of the French Revolution and the ensuing disorders, trade with the Continent suffered. Colnaghi, however, managed to weather the storm by a series of adroit moves. During 1792-1797, he published what is probably the most famous series of English stipple engravings, The Cries of London. At the same time he began to issue engravings of military, naval and patriotic heroes. For instance, on November 7, 1803, when news of Nelson's victory and death at Trafalgar reached London, Colnaghi had already commissioned a portrait engraving. Paul Colnaghi's connections with Europe, his knowledge of languages, and his integrity in business were all of great help to him during this turbulent period. He was able to supply the Government with views of beleaguered towns on the Continent, thus providing information for the besieging armies which would otherwise have been lacking.

DAUM

Sophie Le Tanneur

Daum is a crystal studio based in Nancy, France, founded in 1878 by Jean Daum[1] (1825–1885). His sons, Auguste Daum (1853–1909) and Antonin Daum (1864–1931), oversaw its growth during the burgeoning Art Nouveau period. Currently Daum is the only commercial crystal manufacturer employing the pâte de verre (glass paste) process for art glass and crystal sculptures, a technique in which crushed glass is packed into a refractory mould and then fused in a kiln.[2] During the Universal Exhibition of 1900 Daum was awarded a ‘Grand Prix’ medal. Daum glass became more elaborate, acid etching (by Jacques Gruber) was often combined with carving, enamelling and engraving on a single piece of glass to produce creative glass master-pieces.[citation needed] The most complicated creations also feature applied glass elements, such as handles and ornamental motifs in naturalistic forms. The Daum brothers quickly moved on to become one of the major forces in the Art Nouveau movement, seriously rivalling Gallé, so much so that when Émile Gallé died in 1904 they became the leaders in the field of decorative glass.[citation needed] In 1906 Daum revived pâte de verre (glass paste), an ancient Egyptian method of glass casting, developing the method so that by the 1930s Daum's window panels used pâte de verre for richness instead of leaded or painted glass.[3] Today Daum still used this method to produce their pieces.

PATRIZZI & CO

Osvaldo Patrizzi

Veteran watch auctioneer Osvaldo Patrizzi looked set to change the way buyers and sellers did business in the saleroom. Having controversially parted company with Antiquorum, the company he founded during the 1970s and of which he served as chairman and CEO for more than 30 years, Mr Patrizzi established a new, eponymous house with an ambitious plan. Patrizzi & Co offered a “fresh auction approach” that was going to be “simple, fun and efficacious”. The sales would break new ground in several ways, most notably by not charging buyer’s premium (the amount added to the hammer price of every item sold) with the money being made up by dispensing with expensive-to-produce paper catalogues in favour of digital versions. In addition, massive numbers of lots would be offered in a short space of time in several concurrent auctions at which buyers could bid in the saleroom, by telephone or in real time via the internet. Other “firsts” included a five-year guarantee of authenticity on every lot sold and the option for vendors to sell watches to Patrizzi & Co outright or to consign them for sale for a guaranteed amount, on the basis that the difference between the reserve price and the eventual selling price would be split between vendor and auction house.

BERNARD DULON

Bernard Dulon

African Art . After a master in ethnology at Paris VII university rather than doing fieldwork Bernard Dulon decides to follow his passion for objects, inherited from his father -a great collector; he opens his first gallery in Saint Germain des Prés where the primitive art trade is already blooming when he is only 24. After moving several times for a larger space, he finally settles at his present address, 10 rue Jacques Callot.His ever growing knowledge buttressed by a permanently enriched reference library added to his deep sense of the object rapidly enable him to join the very exclusive club of the great primitive art dealers and to gain their respect and confidence. In 1985 he becomes a member of the Compagnie Nationale des Experts, he is also a member of the Syndicat National des Antiquaires, and in 1988 he is appointed assessor of the Commission de Conciliation et d’Expertise Douanière. He is regularly called in for several prestigious auction sales (Bellier, Berjonneau, Bégué…) and a member of the expertise commission of the main shows but he does not limit his activity to what he would consider a confinement.

PAOLA COLOMBARI

Paola Colombari is the daughter of the oldest antique-dealer dynasties of northern Italy. Paola co-founded with her sister Rossella her first gallery in 1981 in Turin., for approximately ten years the Gallery concentrated on the research of twentieth century design, actively participating in the development of modern collecting, with particular attention to the study and promotion of the famous architect from Turin Carlo Mollino. In 1989 the Colombari sisters opened their first Galleries in Milan and divided it into two branches: the Gallery of Contemporary Art and Avant-garde Design curated by Paola Colombari and the Mid-Century Design Gallery curated by Rossella Colombari.At this juncture, Paola Colombari, an innovative and multi-disciplinary figure, decided to branch away from her long experience with mid-century design and veer towards the experimentation of new post-modernist trends with the foundation in 1991 of the brand EDIZIONI GALLERIA COLOMBARI dedicated to the production of Art Design furnitures designed by important Italian and international designers such as: Karim Rashid, Antonio Cagianelli, David Palterer, Garouste & Bonetti, Yaacov Kaufman, Pawel Grunert , Riccardo Dalisi, Luca Sacchetti, Joanna Lyle and has also collaborated with historical designers such as Alessandro Mendini, Ettore Sottsass, Andrea Branzi, Mario Bellini, Bob Wilson, and Ron Arad. In 1994, the Galleria began the production of the series “Homage to Carlo Mollino”, with the reproduction of seminal pieces of the architect’s ouevre. In 1990, collaborations with important international galleries and museums were also launched (including the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Montréal, Canada - KunsterKolonie Museum, Darmstadt, Germany - Museum of Gent and Oostende, Belgium - Kulturring StadtGallerie, Sundern - Museum of Contemporary Art, Castle of Warsaw, Poland). Colombari also organized exhibitions dedicated to the work of Carlo Mollino for the Istituto Italiano di Cultura, such as the Paris exhibition in 2000 and then in Amsterdam and Brussels in 2001.

NATIONAL GALLERY VICTORIA

Gerard Vaughan

At Oxford University, where Vaughan researched a doctorate on neo-classical taste, he was offered a job in the vice-chancellor's office that turned into a $1 billion fund-raising campaign. It led to a job running the British Museum's development trust for five years from 1994, then the NGV top job, which has included opening a second complex, the Ian Potter Centre, at Federation Square in 2002. Despite being responsible for a collection that is already huge, with more than 70,000 artworks, and worth about $3.5 billion, Vaughan is eager to buy more. ''For the first 50 years [after the Alfred Felton bequest in 1904], we were one of the major acquiring institutions in the world,'' he says. But during the 1950s, the NGV's buying power declined as the bequest income stagnated under a conservative investment policy and prices shot up in the international art market. Now, with the support of private-sector philanthropy, Vaughan believes the NGV is again punching above its weight. ''We are regularly buying the kind of great masterpieces that were common in the early years of the Felton bequest.'' Indeed, one of his favourite quotes about the importance of money comes from the diary of Fenton, the wealthy Melbourne entrepreneur whose bequest has bought more than 15,000 of the NGV's works: ''Money? What's the point? Get it spent, do something useful.''

BERNARDAUD

Michael Bernardaud

The story of French porcelain begins in 1768 when a woman from the village of Saint-Yrieix La Perche near Limoges discovers a soft, white clay that she uses to bleach her household linens. Experts would identify this substance as kaolin: the crucial, long sought after ingredient that is responsible for the resiliency, durability and flawless iridescent translucency of fine porcelain. The search for this “secret ingredient” had lasted four centuries since Marco Polo’s discovery of Chinese porcelain. The discovery of kaolin in France marked the birth of industrial and cultural significance of Limoges porcelain. Against this historical backdrop two enterprising industrialists, noticing an increase in consumer use of porcelain dinner services, open a factory in Limoges in 1863. The construction of railroad lines in the area offered means of distribution of their product to more markets. A workshop apprentice named Léonard Bernardaud distinguished himself among the workers. Twenty years later, he would be promoted to head of sales and later named partner. Léonard Bernardaud acquired the company in 1900 and gave it his name. He increased production capacity of the factory and opened up new markets, notably in the United States. Leonard was succeeded by his sons, Jacques and Michel Bernardaud. The brothers would assure the viability of the company during the turbulence of the Great Depression and World War II through collaborations with artists to expand the company's range of collections. In 1949, they boldly introduced the first gas-fueled tunnel kiln in France that operated 24 hours a day. This “green initiative” ensured constant firing temperatures that yielded sturdier pieces in greater quantity with fewer defects. As a result, industrial scale production was achieved without compromise to the high standards of craftsmanship based on artisan techniques for which the company is known.

LAHUMIERE GALLERY

Geometric Art

Anne and Jean-Claude Lahumière founded Galerie Lahumière in 1963. After 25 years staying next to the Parc Monceau in the 17th arrondissement from Paris, they moved to an 18th century building in the heart of the historic Marais district, a stone’s throw from the Picasso Museum. The gallery participated in the emergence of the first international art fairs in cities such as Basel, Paris, Cologne, and Chicago. In the past forty-five years, the gallery has attended at an average of five fairs per year. From 1993 to 2004 Anne was president of the French association of art galleries (CPGA). In 1999, she was elected president of the European Federation of Art Gallery Associations for three years, later she was part of the Conseil des Ventes (organization of control for the auctioneers in France) during four years. Since many years, Galerie Lahumière has strengthened its commitment to geometric and “constructed” abstraction. It represents not only historic artists within this movement — Cahn, Dewasne, Gorin, Herbin, Legros, Magnelli, and Vasarely — but also contemporary and vanguard artists such as Bauduin, Bézie, Bodde, Coignet, Dubreuil, Gasquet, Jacquier-Stajnowicz, Perrot, Pondruel, Popet, Prosi and Stempfel. “More and more,” say the Lahumières, “our role involves mounting educational exhibitions, reinforcing the image of little-known artists. We feel that the concept of ‘constructed’ art is still consistently creative at the start of this new millennium despite the development and constant rejuvenation of the art scene, convincing us of our commitment. The gallery puts its weight behind every work. Our criterion of quality is simple –- we ask whether a work has a place in our own collection, and at that point we can sell it to a collector.”

Peter & Redmond Finer

After a short period working at Sothey's in London, Peter Finer started dealing on his own account in 1967. 'Over the years I have met many interesting people in places far and wide. Whether it be in the store room of the Arms and Armour Department of The Metropolitan Museum, New York, or in an antique shop in a back street of Montevideo, the common denominator of all Arms and Armour aficionados is enthusiasm. The most difficult part of dealing is assembling a collection of extraordinary objects that are fresh to the market - collecting that represents thousands of miles of travelling and many hours of negotiating, often with extremely reluctant vendors. Collecting Arms and Armour can give life long satisfaction - there is always something new to learn and something else to buy! My greatest pleasure is to build a collection for a particular client. This can include everything, from advice on acquisition or disposal, to conservation, display and cataloguing. I already have some clients with whom I have dealt for over twenty years, their varied collections are, to some degree, my collections.'

MUSEUM OF CYCLADIC ART

Nickos Stampolitis

Nicholas and Dolly Goulandris started collecting archaeological objects at the beginning of the ‘60s, after being granted official permission by the Greek state. The collection soon became renowned among scholars because of its exquisite and rare Cycladic objects (marble figurines and vessels), which were published by Prof. Christos Doumas in 1968. The collection was first presented at the Benaki Museum in 1978. Between 1979 and 1983 it traveled to major museums and galleries around the globe: the National Gallery of Washington in 1979, the Museum of Western Art at Tokyo and Kyoto in 1980, the Houston Museum of Fine Arts in 1981, the Musees Royaux d’Art et d’Histoire and the Palais des Beaux Arts at at Brussels in 1982, the British Museum at London in 1983 and the Grand Palais at Paris in 1983. In recent years, Cycladic objects from the N.P. Goulandris Collection have been presented at the Museo Nacional – Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid (1999), A few years ago, an exhibition of the collection was inaugurated by the President of the Hellenic Republic Karolos Papoulias in the Musei Capitolini in Rome (2006). In 2008 the Museum of Cycladic Art was invited for the Olympics in Beijing to present the Cycladic Collection in the Beijing Art Museum, Imperial City in the Chinese capital. Recently, an archaeological exhibition entitled: Across-The Cyclades and Western Anatolia during the 3rd millennium B.C. was organised in collaboration with the National Archaeological Museum and the Sakip Sabanci Museum at the latter in Istanbul.
