UNCHARTED
TERRITORY
A French designer's penchant for the
unexpected

Whether it be a series of chairs, the latest
Okko Hotel, or even several of France's
surprisingly chic McDonald's, Patrick
Norguet breaks new ground in each of his
projects. "My work is contextual-each
project, each meeting, each piece of work
still represents, for me, a singular source of
inspiration. It's the motor of my creativity,"
he explains. That started at a young age:
growing up on the French countryside,
he found drawing as "the means through
which I communicated with others and
maybe even myself."

A job with Louis Vuitton (where he
worked on visual identification) lasted two
years before he decided to reconnect with
his own "creative liberty" and opened a
design studio in 2000. His first project-
for which he is still best known-was
the Rainbow chair for Cappellini, "a
study of light, color, and material" made
entirely in acrylic resin with plates of
different colors and thickness joined by
ultrasounds. "This chair isn't a chair; it's
a pretext for wonder," he says. "It was
my grand ambassador and my means
of communication with the [artists] of
contemporary design." It certainly put
Norguet on the map, opening doors to
countless collaborations beyond products.
Now, he says, "I am looking for longlasting relationships, not flings. I work in
confidence and respect-those are the two
key words that help me select a client and
start a collaboration."

armchair boasts a thin
fiberglass reinforced
polypropylene shell with
a curved ash profile.
2. The sophisticated
Nicolette from Ethimo
is designed for both
indoors and outdoors
with an encirlcing form
in die-cast aluminum.
