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.
Vincent Dupont-Rougier likes to cover his tracks up and draw off the beaten path. One could almost write he already was a designer before actually becoming one, since it only was after drawing his first pieces that he decided to train at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, himself soon becoming a teacher there. One thing is certain, Vincent Dupont-Rougier on his own embodies some kind of French exception and this discreet man distills his talent with the accuracy of a goldsmith. It is without a doubt this atypical profile and highly personal course which have made him an early craftsman and a faithful ally to Christophe Delcourt’s maison d’édition. To his credit, emblematic pieces such as the DUP coffee table and the AMY library or the OUM side table-- pieces of character, both strong and with an immediateness to their purpose, alternating between straight lines and curves.
