From a call to a book
Amaury once called Pierre Gaudin, co-founder of Creaphis editions, after a short talk and some emails, Pierre decided to develop a book which will talk about Amaury’s creative process. This took 2 years.
The book itself, in its form and content, has been designed to offer the reader a special experience. Some fifteen works are presented and discussed. Marie Pok, director of the Grand Hornu heritage complex, gives a critique of Amaury Poudray’s work as tackling issues of contemporary society. The other texts — interviews with the designer himself and some of his working partners (manufacturers, entrepreneurs, gallery owners, publishers, etc.) — reflect and embody networking in action. Illustrated with preparatory drawings and sketches, photographs of the works created (Laure Mélone) and other documents.
