CHRISTOPHE CÔME

 

A designer based in Paris, Christophe Côme is the progeny of a great tradition of artists and craftsmen. Raised in an artistic family, his uncle is a renown ceramicist and his sister is an acclaimed illustrator.

 

Côme studied under the French sculptor Louis Derbré where he learned the technique of casting bronze. Côme’s original creations were sculptures and jewelry, but towards the mid 1990s he started exploring furniture forms. After a visit to a glass studio in 1995, he began incorporating glass into his pieces. The addition of this medium revolutionized his work.

 

A true heir to the French tradition of design, his works evoke the architectural austerity of Pierre Chareau and echo the modern sensibility towards materials found in the work of Jean Royère. His work has a distinctive style of pure elegance that is balanced with a fresh outlook. His sculptural perspective emanates through his furniture and lighting design, elevating everyday objects into works of art.
