Zoe Bios Creative was founded in Silver Lake, California in 2011.

Zoe Bios Creative has coined the term ‘ArtEntouré’ to express a full circle cross-pollination of the art world with the design world. “Our fusion of art and design inspires a vitality of meaning in the everyday, hopefully provoking a higher consciousness in the way we live with, and make use of objects.”

ZBC’s is also a traverse across cultures, understanding how the relativity of meaning thrives along side the persistent universality of beauty. “We focus on the visual organization of new forms—chance arrangements and purposeful compositions. We want to inspire unconventional thinking, and creative design solutions while maintaining a mindful attention to beauty and contentment in every object that we offer…we are artists, curators, and collaborators.”

Uncontrollable Beauty: Beauty is Generosity

ZBC House Collection

By: DG

“La beauté est la raison d’être” – Louise Bourgeoise

Introducing Part 1 from our Uncontrollable Beauty series, where throughout the year we will post various themes and ideas that are inspired from the book Uncontrollable Beauty. Here editors Bill Beckley and David Shapiro bring back the subject of beauty and recount how we define it now and how it was defined it in the past. Refreshingly opposed to doctrine, the book allows room for debate as well as a fervent reception towards an endless aesthetic. 
 
In this post we explore beauty as generosity – it’s freely revealed, yet we need to see it in order for it to exist. As we waffle between individual and society, beauty is inevitably and inexplicably tied to us. Artists such as Marcel Proust and Louise Bourgeoise have defined beauty as generosity in their own words: Proust once posed beauty as a fleeting, gentle gift in a final moment of one’s life and Bourgeoise has defined it as the purpose of life. There is an art to seeking beauty - and if beauty is inherent - it is at once mysterious, magical, multi-faceted and universal.
