Patrick Norguet approaches objects from a graphical perspective. As a child, he always preferred sketchbooks to textbooks. A stint in industry and design studies mark the unusual career of this constructive, yet avant-garde designer.
He first became recognized as a significant member of the design community when his now-famous Rainbow Chair caught the eye of Giulio Cappellini in 2000.
Patrick Norguet sees design as an encounter with a manufacturer who shapes creative intent with technical, economic constraints and the expectations of a user he hopes to seduce discreetly, yet lastingly. Always drawing inspiration from his surroundings, Patrick Norguet aims to create products whose relevance and modernity will withstand the test of time. Today, he is a leading player on the international stage.
