Below an interview with Christophe Pillet from 2013:
Some of the products designed by Pillet include chairs, vases, benches, light fixtures, and tables.
Works of Christophe Pillet can be found in such prestigious collections as the Pompidou Centre in Paris, France. His work can also be found at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum located in New York City.
Christophe Pillet is a great example of contemporary furniture design. Chairs made with curvy lines rather than straight. Some works of his newer public sitting collection that have a slight barrier to keep the sitter’s privacy. This brings to mind the fun chairs of yesteryear including the fantastic Ball Chair by Eero Arnio.
