Christophe Delcourt is not only a committed and daring designer, he also is an ardent defender of French craft industry. He launched his own furnishing company in the late 90’s and soon stood out with his pieces of furniture combining elegant lines and raw materials. Christophe Delcourt knows that the acquisition of a piece of furniture is “a long term investment, a true companion for life”.
To him, every new furniture collection is like an opportunity to reconsider his work through a slightly different point of view. Yet, the story always begins the same way, with the same passion and the same belief : everything comes from the material, the gesture and the know-how. An attention to every single detail one can read in every single piece designed by Christophe Delcourt, in his particular way to blend a certain rigour and an undeniable sensuality, in his sharp choice of wood, leather or stone. Purchasing a piece of furniture designed by Christophe Delcourt means undoubtedly choosing excellence.
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.
