DAVID GOUNY

David Gouny is a french artist living in the suburb of Paris.
In 2003 David is called out by a scientific study realized in the United States which proves that when we see in a regular way persons in overweight, we increase by 40 % the risk of finding oneself in overweight. We would thus become obese by «habitus».
Shocked by these societal conclusions, David begins a work of reflection on the overweithness by «contamination».
Then David turns to objects symptoms and causes of these excesses, the perma- nent «king size». Today, the «Fat virus» of David takes the shape of objects sewn by hand with vinyl fabrics, contaminating the references of the consumer society, those who are brought to disappear gobbled up by the modernization and those who bury us by their omnipresence.

Ranran design, Josep Pla 39 3 1, 08019 Barcelona, Spain

Ran Ran was born out of passion for interior design and taste for the handmade. After eight years of working in the fashion industry at big-name companies like Zara and Diesel, Bethlehem decided to undertake an endeavor of her own and create a signature expression through yarn and found objects. It is here where she found her true calling. Meticulous attention to detail has been given to each piece, which is entirely handmade by Bethlehem at her atelier in Barcelona. Ran Ran is what had affectionately become her father's nickname, representing the sound of the nights when he rode his motorcycle to her mother's home in courting. To signify the same pursuit of love, and impetus we all have to weave together the raw from which we craft our lives, she has chosen it as both an inspiring guiding light and a symbol representing her work. With the label, Bethlehem creates unique, handwoven wall hangings and accessories using the highest quality natural materials. Inspired by nature and her travels around the world, her work has the charm and individuality of the handmade and the vintage feel together with a modern twist.
