Carpenters Workshop Gallery discovered French artist Martin Laforêt at a graduate show in 2017, and has been working with him ever since. This month, its London location mounts the designer’s first ever solo show, featuring ten limited-edition pieces that incorporate a material as well as the mold used to shape it—Laforêt’s signature move. On view are his rugged concrete and oak objects, which look as if they were jury-rigged from construction site debris (one chair’s base is held together with a pair of green tow straps), as well as a collection made in bronze using a lost-wax casting technique, resulting in furniture including side tables, consoles, and floor and table lamps.
