Born in 1959, Christophe Pillet has been living and working in Paris since 1988. He graduated from Nice’s Arts Décoratifs College in 1985 and became "Master of Domus Academy" in 1986. After graduation, he collaborated with Martine Bedin for two years and then worked with Phillipe Starck from 1988 until 1993.
In 1993, he started to develop his activity independently. He engages in many fields: product and furniture design, interior decoration, architecture, scenography and artistic direction.
Lucidity of expression and the search for simplicity are the key principles: the lightness of touch in the work of Christophe Pillet is elegance epitomized. Pillets perfect command of sensuality and refinement has made him one of the rare French designers to have gained global recognition. He continues therefore to expand his activities beyond objects and furniture. Hotels, boutiques, and art direction have led him to the United States, Great Britain and Japan.
"Design for me is not only a job. It’s not something that I go to the office at nine in the morning. It’s my life." Christophe Pillet
