    Born in 1952 in Lugano, Switzerland, Mattia Bonetti studied textile design at the Centro Scolasitico per l’Industria Artistica, before moving to Paris in 1972. There, he worked as a stylist and photographer, shooting hand-made miniature interiors which kick-started his love of furniture design. He met Elizabeth Garouste in 1987 and they worked as a design partnership for several years, first exhibiting with David Gill in 1988, in London.

     

    Bonetti showed his inaugural solo collection in 2004, at David Gill Gallery, and his 30-year working relationship with Gill is as exciting, creative and fruitful as ever. Key moments in their collaboration include the pieces Grotto, Atlantis and Bubblegum, using materials such as patinated bronze, marble and acrylic.

     

    Mattia Bonetti works are collected by numerous public institutions, including the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.

    Patrik Fredrikson and Ian Stallard met at Central St Martin’s in 1995, where Stallard specialised in ceramics and Fredrikson in product design, having studied architecture in Copenhagen. Their collaboration began almost at once and they produced their seminal Log Table, in 2001, acquired in 2009 by the Victoria and Albert Museum for their permanent collection.

     

    Fredrikson Stallard launched their practice in 2005, and joined David Gill Gallery in 2006; that same year, their shocking-pink Bergere armchairs, made from rubber and highly polished steel, were exhibited at the Design Museum.

     

    Since then, their work has been acquired by the French National Art Collection, MoMA San Fransicso, the Kvadrat Collection, Copenhagen, and twice by the Victoria and Albert Museum; and been exhibited at the Museum of Art and Design, New York, and the Belvedere Museum, Vienna.

    Barnaby Barford (b.1977), Mirror 'Avarice', 2013

    H. 225 x L. 155 x D. 17 cm (88.6 x 61 x 6.7 in.)

    British artist Barnaby Barford (b.1977) produces work in a wide variety of materials, most consistently returning to ceramics. From monumental sculptures composed of thousands of individual ceramic pieces, to large-scale frenzied drawings, his pieces are united by a labour-intensive practice which utilises industrial production processes.

     

    Early porcelain figurines by the artist offered a witty cultural critique, reflecting on the folly of man with a satire akin to Chaucer and Hogarth. More recent installations and drawings are characterised by a biting social commentary on our desire for more. Barford is celebrated for subverting familiar iconography in his work, placing ancient cautionary tales within a contemporary context.

     

    Graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2002 with an MA in Ceramics and Glass, Barford has been represented by David Gill Gallery since 2005. He has exhibited internationally, with major solo shows across Europe and the USA, and a survey show at MOCA, Virginia, in 2013. His work has been acquired by public and private collections from the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, to the National Libraries of France and the Netherlands, and MoFA in Houston, Texas. Based in London, Barford has been an Associate Lecturer at Central Saint Martins since 2004.
