Patrick Norguet approaches objects and design from a graphical perspective. Since childhood, he has preferred sketchbooks to textbooks, lling them up with sketches and drawings.
A “hands-on” approach of industry and design studies in Paris (ESDI) mark the unusual pro le of this constructive rebel. His career underwent a dramatic change in 2000 when Giulio Cappellini spotted his now famous Rainbow Chair.
What he is most passionate about is exchanging with manufacturers, discovering their know-how. Patrick Norguet does not follow trends but seeks to give shape to products whose relevance and modernity would withstand the test of time: “A well-designed object, an object created through generous collaboration is timeless”.
From consumer products to luxury objects, Patrick Norguet leaves an impression of authenticity and elegance. Today, he is an essential gure on the international design scene.
