French-born Christophe Delcourt graduated from Paris’ Cours Florent in 1988 and studied at the Theatre Ecole du Passage in 1989. Committed to designing furniture and objects, Delcourt opened his first studio in the Marais area of Paris in 1998.
Since then, he has designed for restaurants, hotels and boutiques and has exhibited furniture and lamps at Joyce Gallery in Paris. Over the past decade, his Paris-based firm has produced some of the most coveted and influential furniture of the new millennium.
Each piece bearing the Delcourt Collection stamp stands as testament to the integral relationship between the designer’s hand and the one of the craftsman: a French excellency which favors discretion over ostentatious effects, but has none the less become a true signature. Without ever relying on artifice, the hand lets the material speak. It tames its apparent rigor only to reveal its softness, the freedom, and versatility it offers, while preserving its unique character.
