Discovering the pop and naive sculptures of Léa Mestres 

The style of the young designer, a graduate of the ESAD in Reims and the Design School Academy of Eindhoven, is far removed from the industrial rigidity that has come to characterize 20th-century design. To serve her vision, Léa Mestres has taken everyday objects and turned them into real sculptures with soft and enveloping forms. At her latest group show, “Sisters-Sisters,” held at the SCENE OUVERTE Gallery, the young woman delighted us with her line of lamps, “Craving for plaster,” where she associated this material used in the world of construction with radiant acid colors. To these incredible creatures, we can add the series “Bubble,” asymmetrical and curvaceous, with its incredible silver bench, but also its “Bubble stool” in marble, and the lamp, “Babette,” in bronze.
