Prepare to be enchanted by De La Espada’s groundbreaking collaboration with a French designer, an open collection that weaves together the realms of astronomy and geometry. Anthony Guerrée’s visionary partnership with De La Espada tells a captivating story, inspired by his recurring dream of stargazing beneath the Summer Triangle asterism in Joshua Tree Park. The result is a contemporary range of furniture that embodies adaptability, functionality, and a sculptural aesthetic.

As the first French designer to collaborate with De La Espada, Anthony Guerrée infuses his creations with a fusion of traditional craftsmanship and an innovative vision shaped by his global travels, personal interactions, and literary encounters. A graduate of École Boulle in Paris, renowned for its rich heritage in fine and applied arts, Guerrée honed his skills within an environment where craftsmanship reigns supreme. Prior to establishing his own studio in 2020, he worked alongside renowned designers Andrée Putman and Christophe Delcourt. Guerrée’s design journey was further highlighted by the launch of a collection inspired by Marcel Proust’s “À la recherche du temps perdu,” garnering acclaim and accolades such as the prestigious Le French Design 100 award in 2022. Notably, his sculptural chair, Verdurin, found its place in the esteemed collections of the French Mobilier National. Recently, at Paris Design Week 2022, Guerrée collaborated with M éditions at Fondation Le Corbusier, presenting “Fragments,” a captivating exhibition.
