In a space decorated by Ettore Sottsass, Yves Gastou opened his Parisian gallery in 1986, specialized in the Decorative Arts of the 20th century. He organized the first exhibitions in France of design masters from the 1980s. He displayed such artists as Memphis, Shiro Kuramata and Ron Arad, juxtaposed with the major decorators of the 1940s and 50s, like Andre Arbus and Gilbert Poillerat. In the taste of such remarkable designers as Henry Samuel, he highlights the creations of designers from the 1970s such as Philippe Hiquily, Ado Chalo and Paul Evans.

Joined by his son Victor in 2005, Yves Gastou continues to exhibit spatial and playful furnitures from the 1960s and 70s, encompassed the dream of a free and relaxed way of life which a democratized art through the introduction of new materials, such as resin, brass, stainless steel and stone geodes, all while integrating a sleek contemporary design.
