Yves Gastou is a specialist for furniture and sculpture of the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s. He hunts for, rediscovers all the forgotten designers of those years. He was the one who since 1985 has organized the first exhibitions in France of Ron Arad, Ettore Sottsass or Shiro Kuramata, that he then confronted with the works by older major designers of the 1940s and 1950s as André Arbus, Jacques Adnet, Paul Evans, Gabriella Crespi, Joe Colombo and many others. It is thanks to gallery owners like him that we now enjoy the return of Art Deco in the forefront. Joined by his son Victor in 2005, Yves Gastou continues to exhibit the spatial and playful furniture of the 60s and 70s, cherishing the dream of a free and relaxed way of life, of an art democratized thanks to the introduction of new materials, such as resin, brass, stainless steel, and stone geodes, while integrating a sleek contemporary design. Victor has continued the adventure alone since Yves’ disappearance in 2020.
