Pierre Guariche (1926-1995) was a renowned French designer, interior decorator, and architect known for his significant contributions to the world of design. His pioneering work in residential lighting design with Pierre Disderot during the 1950s solidified his position as a master craftsman. In addition to lighting, Guariche's talents extended to furniture design and architecture. This 'Coquillage' series design encapsulates Guariche's signature aesthetic and philosophy. As an architect, Guariche prioritized shape and form, while also striving to create simplistic and affordable industrial furniture. These 'shell' chairs exemplify his ideals, utilizing simple design interventions such as a patterned punched seat to create a playful yet effective piece.
