THE DESIGNER / PIERRE CHARPIN
Pierre Charpin trained as an artist before turning his attention to objects and furniture. Pierre’s training as an artist has informed many of his designs, yet his PC lamp is a technically advanced design, engineered to conceal the inner workings of the lamp and employ today’s most modern lighting technology.
Pierre works from his father, the artist Marc Charpin’s, former studio on the outskirts of Paris. Filled with light and a vast array of objects and drawings the studio looks out on a skate park and playground built by his father in the 1970s.
