Patrick Norguet is an essential yet discrete figure in the tricolor scene. Somewhat atypical, he doesn’t lend himself to the exercise of free expression in a gallery, on the contrary, he finds pleasure in the constraint around the creation of a high-end office as much as the lunch environment of a McDonald’s restaurant. His appetence for soft forms and understatement as well as his continual pursuit for the just form and color makes it one of his strengths that is perpetual and, at the same time, always on the tip of the French scene.
With his sense of color, his formal restraint, his elegant purity coupled with character and his continual search for comfort, his work is in direct filiation with the canons of Nordic design. Therefore, it’s not surprising that the designer develops creations with the Swedish brand, Offecct, or that he has assumed with finesse the torch of Pierre Paulin from the Dutch brand, Artifort.
