Passionate about sculpture since her beginnings, this interior architect and designer, who is directly inspired by the beauty of the elements that touch her, such as the splendors of nature, jewelry or haute couture, launched in 2014 l he daring challenge to redefine our relationship to art by intimately linking sculpture and functionality for artist’s furniture. Inspired by the world around us – stones like humans, landscapes or stories that relate in mirror – Hoon Moreau tries to transcribe them through her visual language in the furniture she creates. Poems, songs of joy, fairy tales or nostalgic reminiscences intermingle in an insane harmony in motion. It offers to the gaze, chests of drawers, tables, lamps or screens, in a set where delicate taut lines are linked, monochrome colored shades, dense presences which take flight. Time and dreams come together here. The secret movement of singular beauty appears and invites itself into our daily lives. His sculpted furniture marries poetic creativity and meticulous realization, shattering the barrier between art and life, beauty and utility. In search of a symbiosis, on the one hand between the quintessence of nature and the crystallization of sublime beauty, on the other hand between artistic creation and functionality, Hoon Moreau offers a new aesthetic adventure that becomes reality.
