Francis Cat-Berro, a Geography Masters graduate, took over his father’s carpentry workshop after ten years of training. In 1988, he met Pierre Staudenmeyer, the founder of the Galerie Neotu and became his cabinetmaker until 2001. Up and coming designers of the time called upon the services of Cat-Berro for their private commissions, including Garouste and Bonetti, Martin Szekely, Eric Schmitt, Eric Jourdan, Patrick Naggar, Jacques Jarrige, and many more. In 1993, Cat-Berro opened a contemporary furniture store in Orléans, in association with Véronique Sainten. Cat-Berro launched a production activity for exclusive models with Garouste and Bonetti, Jacques Jarrige, Eric Jourdan and Eric Schmitt. Therefore, it was only natural that Cat Berro took over a gallery in Paris in 2014 in order to represent the creators with whom he had built up a relationship over the previous twenty years. They have designed the exclusive collections for the gallery which produces all its exhibitions.
