Artnet News

The exhibition "Makers of Dreams" brings together over 100 works by the late artistic duo François-Xavier and Claude Lalanne.


Few designers inspire the fervor that the late French husband-and-wife designers Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne continually do with their idyllic animal-inspired designs and whimsical jewels. 


Now, lovers of Les Lalanne are in for a treat. London’s Ben Brown Fine Arts has recently opened “Les Lalanne: Makers of Dreams,” an extensive survey of more than 100 works by the artists. The exhibition, installed by famed Italian designer Manfredi della Gherardesca, encompasses both Ben Brown and the newly opened Claridge’s ArtSpace, also in Mayfair. Across these two locations, viewers can experience a veritable Lalanne menagerie, from their iconic Mouton statues to monkey tables and a whole zoo of creatures in between.
