Pierre Charpin

Edited by Lionel Bovier, Clément Dirié. Text by Alessandra Fanari, Françoise Guichon, Marco Romanelli.

Pierre CharpinThe furniture, objects and exhibition designs of French designer Pierre Charpin (born 1962) deal with notions of landscape and autonomy, humor and surprise, poetic presence and minimalism. He speaks of them in terms of "receptors" rather than "emitters," envisaging "objects primarily as forms and only on a second level as functional purposes." Creating limited-edition series in association with Galerie Kreo (Paris), working with world-famous glass workshop CIRVA in Marseille or Sèvres porcelain studios, Pierre Charpin is active in both industrial and experimental design. In 2005, he was elected Creator of the Year at the Paris Salon du meuble and Grand-Hornu Images (Belgium) organized a retrospective of his work in 2011. Richly illustrated with both objects and drawings, this monograph gathers together essays by former Centre Pompidou Head of Design Françoise Guichon and design critic Alessandra Fanari, a conversation with design historian Marco Romanelli and an index of Charpin's creations of the past 25 years.

Featured image, of "Scatola 9," a limited edition lacquered wood box for the Oggetti Lenti collection, 2005, is reproduced from Pierre Carpin.

Pierre Charpin, Design Drawing (2013)

"Everything starts with drawing. I think with drawing, and my ideas come to me as I draw. Drawing also fulfills the role of clearing out everything that is encumbering the mind, to make it available." Untitled (2013) is reproduced from JRP|Ringier's new monograph on iconic French designer Pierre Charpin, who continues, "I have always done drawings, the end purpose of which is the drawing itself, drawings I call 'design drawings.' I attach great importance to them. They correspond to the only time when I do not need to call on outside skills, the time when I am responsible for the entirety of a production." continue to blog

Pierre Charpin: Blown Glass Vase from the Écran series, CIRVA collection (1998-2001)

"I have of course had access to various color theories, but I have forgotten everything about them, down to the very name of some colors. I use color in a direct, intuitive way. The way I use it depends on how I feel." Featured image, a unique blown glass vase from the Écran series for the CIRVA collection (1998-2001), is reproduced from JRP|Ringier's new monograph on French designer Pierre Charpin, who writes, "I like to define a color capable of 'enclosing' a form. Or, on the contrary, when I use 'my' acid yellow or certain bright shades, they are 'open,' they vibrate, and so even if the form is squared, thanks to the color it catches the eye, allowing me to read it differently." continue to blog
