“For me, Joseph André Motte’s furniture—which will be exhibited this October by the New York gallery Demisch Danant—embodies both the romance of centuries-old craft traditions and the simple elegant lines of industrially produced pieces. To my eyes, his work evokes the mid-century ‘space race’ zeitgeist. His pieces [such as the 1952 rattan and metal frame ‘Catherine’ chair, right] all suggest that they can transform into something else, or, perhaps, that they could even transport you into the future.”
