Pierre Charpin has been named Maison et Objet’s Designer of the Year and will showcase his work in a self-designed hub at the fair in January.
Charpin was recognized as Designer of the Year for the fair’s January edition on the basis of his vast portfolio of work across a number of the world’s leading brands.
At the fair, the chosen designer showcases their work in a space entirely designed by and dedicated to them.
The most recent winner was London designer Ilse Crawford, who created a Designers’ Studio with spaces to help visitors to the Paris fair “relax, collapse, recharge, recap, reconnect, regroup and refresh”.
In his self-designed space, Charpin will present a number of products he has created throughout his career, including the PC lamp he developed over a three-year period with Sebastian Wrong.
Since the early 1990s Charpin has devoted himself to designing furniture and objects. In 1990 his first solo exhibition was held at the Galerie Perkal, in Paris, where he presented his research into the possibility of “anthropomorphic” furniture, and a series of silver tableware objects.
