After earning a diploma in Decorative Arts in Nice, in 1985, Christophe Pillet began his professional training by collaborating with Philippe Starck prior to becoming a fully independent designer, in 1993.
Pillet has distinguished himself through his designs, furniture design and interior architecture. His works are an expression of the “esprit” found in the new and very promising wave in contemporary French design.
Already nominated “Designer of the Year” in 1994, Pillet is considered a designer who devotes himself to the choice of materials and finishes, through which he has always expressed solemn elegance.
This typical refinement can be found in Christoph Pillet’s creations for Cappellini, the Sunset armchair and the High Time sofa and armchair series.
Pillet’s taste and personality are also evident in the designs he made in collaboration with other companies, such as Lacoste, Edra, Trussardi, Daum, Lancôme, Shiseido e Whirlpool.
