Maison et Objet Paris has announced the designer of the year for the fair’s January edition: Pierre Charpin. Pierre Charpin is a French designer, artist, and scenographer dedicated to bringing a poetic form into a minimalistic design that is expressed in a luxury selection of objects and furniture.
Maison et Objet 2017 will take place in Paris from the 20th to the 24th of January. At the trade show, Charpin will feature his fresh collection in a space, specially designed by himself in collaboration with M&O, for the exhibition of his unique artworks.
As an innovator and visionary, in 1998, he produced a set of glass objects at the CIRVA (International Glass and Visual Arts Research Centre) in Marseille. In 2000 in Vallauris he tried his first works with ceramics. In 2011, he designed a collection called Intervalles, which is composed by glasses and a carafe for Cristalleries Saint-Louis.
In 1990, he found his way in the world of the design and he started to focus on design and produce furniture objects. After working a couple of years in a Milan-based Studio founded by the British designer George Sowden (co-founder of the Memphis Group), he returned to Paris and he started to dedicate himself to the furniture design. In 1998, Brunati started distributing his first design piece: the Slice armchair.

From 1998 to 2008, Pierre Charpin taught at the École Supérieure d’Art et de Design in Reims and at Ecal in Lausanne, Switzerland, but he has never lost his passion for the design and creation and he never stopped creating after all.
After 2008, Pierre Charpin dedicated himself exclusively to the interior design world and with a huge success. His designs are included in many private collections, and are held in some public collections: Fonds National d’Art Contemporain (Paris/La Défense), Musée National d’Art Moderne/Centre de création Industrielle (Paris), Musée des Arts Décoratifs (Paris), Grand–Hornu Images (Mons), Indianapolis Museum of Art (USA).
“For me, there is no difference between working for industry or a gallery,” said Pierre Charpin.
