Camondo school alumni - 2002, Pierre Gonalons very quickly established his singular vision of design and space, he founded his creative studio when he was 23 and his first creations were shown the following year.He defends a minimal design mixed with references to the decorative arts and pop culture. His creations are setting between simplicity and spectacular and revealing a subtle work of interpretation about the subjects he remains faithful and which are his signature. He focuses on the expression of the material and the craftsmanship which he considers to be a major source of inspiration. Beyond the simple function, the object must convey a contemporary meaning and a sincere message.
