About Guariche...
Pierre Guariche is a legendary French designer from the 20th Century. He gave a personal and innovative touch to design by combining aestheticism and mass production.

As a visionary designer, he knew how to create pieces of furniture with a functionalist approach and an aesthetic dimension. He really wanted to meet the needs of the times by using methods of the series production. His creations became mythic pieces such as the Tonneau chair (1953 and 1954), the Tulip chair (1953) and the President desk (1961).

Pierre Guariche studied at the School of Decorative Arts and he graduated in 1949. Then, he worked in the Marcel Gascoin workshop and presented his first models during shows dedicated to Home Economics and Decorative Artists. In 1953, he designed for Steiner the legendary Tonneau chair in plastic then he used plywood for this model in 1954. He founded with Joseph-André Motte and Michel Mortier the ARP (Plastics Research Workshop) in 1954. In 1957, he became the Artistic Director of the Meurop furniture manufacturer. Later, he shared his knowledge to students of the School of Architecture in Tournai and to the School of Decorative Arts in Paris.
