    Delvaux is the oldest fine leather luxury goods company in the world, an authentic Belgian brand since 1829. The house has designed over 3000 handbags and continues to create contemporary classics, which are characterised by elegance, imagination and a dash of humour. Damien Gernay places emphasis on experimentation and inhabits a world bridging art and design. For those who want it, his objects may be given and have a function, but they can equally be regarded as purely aesthetic forms. Gernay is a designer who also loves working with leather and has used it  throughout his career, so the meeting with Delvaux is a wonderful match of skills and creative minds. The collaboration has produced three sculptural objects that suggest the swift movement of an instantaneous act in combination with master craftsmanship of the highest level, the latter defined by time-consuming work of precision and meticulousness.
