Meetings and conversations
The line is always for Guillaume Piéchaud what unites and harmonizes the forms.
One of his iconic pieces, la Conversation (Conversation), draws the continuous line that invites us to meet.
Hybrid between the « Confident », a sort of two-seater sofa with an « S » shaped back invented under the Second Empire, and the « Bureau Max Ingrand », designed in 1966 by Ben Swildens for Peugeot’s headquarters in Paris, these Conversations, from the simplest to the most monumental, come in various materials.
They symbolize the artist’s fascination with dialogue, not only curves designed face to face, but also materials. Stone, steel, and wood, brass or leather go together in sublime pieces, real furniture-jewelry reviving his talent as a goldsmith.
P.95, Catalog monograph of artist
Guillaume Piéchaud, artist born in 1968 in Paris, is an extraordinary designer and sculpture who immerses us in the heart of a "fantastic" design through a repertoire of patterns and dreamlike shapes, forming an identifiable but constantly reinvented universe, composed furniture with contemporary purpose simple and refined shapes.
A graduate of the Boulle school in 1988 in engraving on precious metals and volume, the artist joined the workshops of the most renowned jewelers and created jewelry collections for eight years, working for the big names in luxury jewelry. At the same time, Guillaume Piéchaud perfected his skills in engraving and continued his artistic career.
The young artist designer with incredible potential then seeks to explore art in all its forms, giving birth to creations, inspired by his imaginary bestiary. His creatures reveal themselves with their skin in polished stainless steel, a naturally cold material that nevertheless fills with warmth and softness through the shape and luminosity of the objects. The very pronounced taste for light is one of the characteristics that the artist has cultivated over the years, which gives their unique character to his creations. Faced with these, one cannot distinguish furniture from jewellery.
He now lives in Aulnay-sous-Bois.
