By  |  Comments

Galleria Carla Sozzani presents Les Sculptures Utilitaires, Pierre Cardin exhibition on the occasion of Design Week 2017, from April 4th to Monday May 1st 2017.

My furniture is sculpture. I like to work as a sculptor; it’s my life, my passion, my happiness and my joy. The reason of my work. think as a sculptor, I create a form. It is a process where what matters is to create a line that was not there before. And now it is here to stay. I wanted to shape furniture as a sculpture that you are also able to watch from different angles as the bodies I dress. – Pierre Cardin

This exhibition pays tribute to Pierre Cardin, the extraordinary precursor of forms and ideas, through the design projects that in the Seventies paved the vision of Pierre Cardin, the great couturier. The “Sculptures Utilitaires” are the furniture designs, and lighting in which Pierre Cardin, the sculptor of fashion translated his geometric shapes, his symmetrical cuts, and his curves, into interiors. – from Galleria Carla Sozzani
