Work of Jean Paul Gaultier at Studio Makkink & Bey from April

Published on : Tuesday, April 14, 2015

JEAN PAULThe work of designer Jean Paul Gaulter will be exhibited in Studio Makkink & Bey for the forth coming exhibition in Paris to be held from 1 April to August 3 at the Grand Palais. Studio Makkink & Bey’s installation, Morphing: The Living, is inspired by the duo’s set design for Gaultier’s spring/summer 2004 fashion show.


The interior will be based around the Kokon Furniture series, designed by Jurgen Bey in the late 1990s/early 2000s. Gaultier noticed the Kokon range at the Sketch gallery in London and was so impressed that he asked Studio Makkink & Bey to design a set for his show. In the design for that show chairs and tables were pressed against an elastic skin, showing a skeleton of recognizable furniture forms. The backdrop connected arm rests and chair seats and merged into a domestic hybrid with the wall behind the fashion models. Now, in 2015, Gaultier has again approached the designers, who will transform the entrance room of the Grand Palais with Morphing.
