Originally trained as an artist, Pierre Charpin has specialised in designing furniture and design objects since the early 1990s. His design approach is strongly influenced by his background in art. His research into both form and colour can be seen in both his limited edition products and industrial products like the HAY PC lamp.
Pierre Charpin's designs have been included in exhibitions and museums around the world. He was also elected Designer of the Year at Maison & Objet 2017. He currently lives and works in Paris, France.
