Pierre Guariche - Luminaires, Mobilier, Architecture d'Intérieur

SKU: 9782376660286

The abundant work of Pierre Guariche (1926-1995) accompanies the Trente Glorieuses as well as the great administrative and societal changes of the 1980s. Trained by Marcel Gascoin, Guariche began in 1951 as an independent decorator-creator of models. For nearly twenty years, he designed innovative furniture with the help of avant-garde publishers, such as Airborne, the MAI gallery, TV furniture, Steiner, Les Huchers-Minvielle, then Meurop, or even Pierre Disderot for lighting. . Revisiting useful forms in the light of new materials, in 1954 he founded the Plastic Research Workshop (ARP) with Michel Mortier and Joseph-André Motte, the first French collective of creators that lasted three years.

From the 1960s, he favoured interior architecture, where his mastery of space, materials and their implementation binds him on many projects. He participated in the Firminy site after the death of Le Corbusier and collaborated with the architect Michel Bezançon in the creation of La Plagne or Jean Dubuisson in Bandol. Called upon for multiple private and public projects, he notably fitted out the prefecture and the general council of Essonne in Évry as well as the tribunal de grande instance of Créteil.

Based on unpublished archives, this book looks back on a rich journey of more than 200 installations, almost as many pieces of furniture and an exceptional set of lighting fixtures that lays the groundwork for modern lighting.
