Pierre Charpin’s PC lamp series is a family of refined and precisely engineered multifunctional lamps, featuring a variety of designs and functions.
The collection includes variants with single- and double arms, as well as free- standing, desk, clamp, suspended, and wall-mounted lights, as well as a portable outdoor model, the PC Portable.
Common to all designs is the designer’s intention to keep the object as visually simple as possible, making sure technical components are kept out of view.
HAY - Horsens, Denmark
HAY was founded in 2002 with the ambition to create contemporary furniture that uses sophisticated industrial manufacturing to satisfy the needs of modern living. Today, this fundamental goal remains our mission: through our commitment to the design and production of furniture, lighting and accessories with an international appeal, we strive to make good design accessible to the largest possible audience.
Inspired by the stable structures of architecture and the dynamics of fashion, HAY combines the values of both industries in durable, quality products that provide added value for the user. HAY’s continued vision is to create straightforward, functional and aesthetic design in cooperation with some of the world’s most talented, curious and courageous designers. This results in many fruitful collaborations.
Trained as an artist, Pierre Charpin has devoted himself to furniture and object design since the early 1990s.
His approach to design is strongly influenced by his artistic background. Pierre’s research on form and color characterize his work and can be seen in both, limited edition products and industrial products like the PC lamp (HAY).
The use of a simple vocabulary and elementary forms is a constant aspect in his work, as well as the desire to offer sensual objects. Drawing, which he practices as a starting point for his designs, is an essential part of his creative process.
Pierre Charpin's pieces have been included in exhibitions around the world and are held in many museum collections. He was elected Designer of the Year 2017 at Maison & Objet.
He lives and works in Paris.
