Interior designer, scenographer, designer, Jean-Pierre Tortil is a complete artist. He is also and foremost a hard worker and a true passionate of know-how and innovation. Tortil exercised his talents in various galleries specializing in decorative arts and furniture, as well as at Ecart International, after a defining encounter with the immense Andrée Putman. In the early 2000s, Christophe Delcourt’s and his own paths crossed in the workshop of the artisans both men collaborate with, without even knowing it. A coincidence which will give birth to a piece that has now become emblematic of the maison d’édition’s catalog : the YBU table.
