Convinced that furniture design is more than object development, Christophe Pillet is one of the most legendary French designers of his generation. He graduated with a diploma in Decorative Arts at Nice, and obtained his Master degree from the Milan Domus Academy. He has been living and working in Paris since 1988 and in 1994 he was elected creator of the year at the Salon du Meuble.
His work is highly versatile, including design for furniture, interior architecture and products. As a designer “specialising in life styles”, Pillet has designed iconic contemporary furniture for Varaschin and Serralunga, such as the Summerset and Pinebeach collections respectively. His current projects include a residential development in Marrakesh, a restaurant in Prague, and the Hotel Sezz soon to be opened at Saint Tropez.
