AUTIONS : American Design & New Hope School l Mise-en-Scène by Laura Gonzalez

Mise-en-Scène by Laura Gonzalez

Poetry, Brutalism, Craftsmanship

The brutalism of Paul Evans, the gentleness of George Nakashima and the freedom of Wharton Esherick.

All embellished with motifs from Nature: the style of Laura Gonzalez, renowned for her ‘Bohemian Chic,’ her expert use of patterns, and her love of craftsmanship and noble materials. She is a perfectionist with an insatiable appetite for hard work who, rather than embodying trends or a definite style, infuses venues with her own personality and non-stop commitment to quality. After her ultra-traditional schooling at the Maison d’Education de la Légion d’Honneur, Laur
a Gonzalez abandoned plans to read Political Science in favour of a more creative, artistic, yet equally prestigious course at the Paris-Malaquais School of Architecture. In 2004, while still a student, she founded her own agency: Pravda Arkitect. She consolidated her growing success by swiftly assembling a team of versatile craftsmen (furniture-makers, fabric specialists and painters) to help her compose her interiors, fusing a variety of sources of inspiration – from 18th century classicism to 1970s Design – all interpreted with the contemporary materials that have become her hallmark.

As time has passed and her projects multiplied, Laura Gonzalez has acquired experience and maturity, applying contemporary touches to a world of tradition. She has worked on shops, private apartments, hotels and mythical Paris restaurants and nightspots – including Le Schmuck, La Quincaillerie, Le Wood, La Belle Epoque, the Bus Palladium, the restaurant La Gare and, more recently, the Brasserie Auteuil, L’Alcazar, Margherita, the Peruvian restaurant Manko and the Left Bank hotel Relais Christine. Her reputation arms her for even bigger projects in the future, as she broadens her creative horizons and develops her agency with its team of valued collaborators.
