French designer Pierre Charrié researches the influence of everyday objects on our five senses.
by Anna Moldenhauer | 12/20/2017

Designer Pierre Charrié integrates unusual, sensory experiences into his furniture and home accessories. For example, the highboard “Wallet” appears rigid at first sight. However, anyone who tries to open its front experiences the flexible materiality of the leather fronts (held in place by invisible magnets) – in fact, they can be gently folded back as in a bag. By contrast, the amplifier “Surfaces Sonores” uses variously curving panels of pressed plywood panels to amplify sound via a buzzer. The latter is attached to the back and depending on the shape of the wooden panel amplifies high frequencies, middle tones and the bass of music. The lamp “Pénates” frames the luminaire body in a wooden box and presents it to best advantage. Rounded wooded rods act as a base and static element; in the area of the luminaire they are painted gold to gently reflect the light. (am)
