Pierre Guariche

Pierre Guariche (1926 - 1995)

Born in 1926, Pierre Guariche studies at the École Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, from which he graduates in 1949, before starting to work in Marcel Gascoin's studio.

Iconic designer of the French twentieth century, his creations combine functionalism and an advanced sense of aesthetic, while moving towards mass production, to better meet the needs of his time.

Among his iconic pieces, the Tonneau Chair, made for Steiner in 1953, first in plastic and then in folded plywood, or the Tulip Chair in 1956.
