Pierre Cardin, the inventor of 'prêt-à-porter' whose graphically iconic initials personify his signature style, is best known for fashion and accessory design. However, he launched a unique furniture line during the 1970s that transposed his sculptural approach to fashion into domestic design. Futuristic forms combining traditional lacquer and cabinetmaking techniques were produced alongside revolutionary space-age designs featuring metal and plastics. Artistic director and catalyst, he challenged artists such as Serge Manzon, Christian Adam, Mana Pergay, Giacomo Passera, Claude Prevost and François Cante-Pacos to renew contemporary French furniture. Archival documents and newly-commissioned photography include rare designs produced in his Paris workshops and by the firms Yamada Shomei, Ideal Standard, Bruynzeel and Steiner. Pierre Cardin actively participated in this timely publication aimed at the burgeoning market for 1970s design.Auteurs :
