Collection Kino Guern
About Kino Guerin
The environment is a huge topic in todays life and eco friendly furniture is on the list for who is searching for having a green home or a green life style. The Kino Guerin's collection fulfill this need and brings to Montreal the essence of green building conception, with the work of an artist from Quebec, Canada.
The main characteristic of Kino Guérin’s artistic approach is the search of equilibrium. This seems obvious at three levels : equilibrium between the work of art and the utility object, between the curve and the straight line and finally in the choice of materials. Noble woods and precious veneers coexist with industrial materials such as plywood. The harmonization of contrasting veneers brings a new facet to the notion of equilibrium, which, without being directly inspired by nature, nevertheless emanates from its essence.
The aesthetic part of his creation, while of great simplicity, is the result of many years of research on both the shape and the technique. Most of the molding of the artist creative pieces is done by means of the vacuum press laminated process. It has already been some 10 years since Kino Guérin started exploring the multiple possibilities of this revolutionary technique. As each one of his discoveries opens new fields of creation, a never-ending future of revelations is waiting for him
In 1998, Kino Guérin wins the emerging artist award at the Montreal Craft Show. In 1999, he receive the Prix François Houdé awarded by the city of Montréal to highlight the talent of young creative artists. In 2005, the coherence and contemporary quality of his work is honored with the best booth design award at the Montreal Craft Show. He is a 2007 NICHE Awards finalist in the USA. In 2010 he received “Coup de Coeur” price at Montreal Design Show. Over the years Kino Guérin has received several grants from the Quebec Arts Council and the Canada Arts Council.
