Launched in France in 2014 by Jérôme Aumont, Collection Particulière is a design production company dedicated to editing collections that revolve around the idea of motion: the stroke of the designer’s pen, the caress of the maker’s hand, and ultimately, the way an object’s owner will use the piece and make it his or her own. Each eye-catching sculptural object from Collection Particulière is an exploration into technically challenging processes and noble materials, such as wood, marble, leather, brass and ceramic. Aumont seeks out collaborations with young and conceptually-driven designers, including Dan Yeffet, Christophe Delcourt, and Margaux Keller.
Charles Kalpakian was born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1982. After collaborating with prestigious agencies including the Ora Ito and Christophe Pillet in 2011, he launched his design studio and has since been developing his own projects. He draws his inspiration from his roots in France and Lebanon, as well as street-art culture. These influences take shape through the reinterpretation of motifs derived from the decorative arts that were in turn inherited from the history and geography of Lebanon. Kalpakian's line of work is always sharp yet flexible; almost like the strokes created by a calligraphy brush. Ranging from product to interior design, his ventures always highlight the richness of his origins combined with the elements of Western modernity.
