Yonel Lebovici (1937-1998) Having obtained a diploma in aeronautics in 1955, Lebovici studied drawing at the Grande-Chaumière, moving on to the Ecole national supérieure des arts appliqués and then the Ecole des arts et métiers in Paris in 1957. In 1962 he joined Serge Mansau’s studio (Mansau was born in 1930). Here he learnt glassblowing. In 1965 he made one of his first pieces, the Aquariophile table. Not long afterwards, in 1969, he opened his own sculpture studio in the rue d’Artois in Paris. Here he produced his first light works thanks to financial backing from the industrialist Phlippe Lhotellier. That same year, he met Felix Canetti from the Société Distrimex who began to produce his designs. These were soon commercialized internationally. In 1972 he opened the gallery ‘Formes et Couleurs’ in the 18th arrondissement in Paris. Here he exhibited unusual objects found at flea markets alongside his own creations. Biography from Galerie Chastel-Maréchal, Paris.
