Patrick Norguet is an essential figure on the international design scene.
After completing his design studies at the ESDI, Patrick Norguet was commissioned to design the display windows of two major players in the luxury industry: Yves Saint-Laurent and Louis Vuitton. From these experiences, he gained an un- derstanding of brand identity and the way of showcasing it. Designing Renault ‘s event stands helped him to hone and apply his synthesis skills to ephemeral architectures.
In 2000, his Rainbow Chair, noticed and produced by Giulio Cappellini, gave him visibility that quickly spread thanks to the international media. He then opened his studio in Paris. His early furniture collections for Bernhardt, Artifort, Offect, Capdell or the French companies Alki and Tolix validated and established his presence at international shows. In 2010, designing one McDonald’s restaurant in France gradually led to a collaboration with McDonald’s Global. Patrick Norguet has become an emblematic figure of French design.
Alias, Arflex, Artemide, Cassina, Emu, Ethimo, Glass Italia, Kristalia, Lea Ceramica, Pedrali, de Padova, and Tacchini quickly recognized his talent and authority and fully involved him in the production process and strives to create long-lasting collections. Drawing inspiration from everything that surrounds him, 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 time- less.”
