    Visionary designer, Pierre Guariche (1926-1995) is one of the mythical French designers of the 1950's who made his mark on his era with pieces of pure aestheticism, functional and accessible. 

    A graduate of the École nationale supérieure des Arts décoratifs, he published his first models on his own, including the famous Rotaflex lamp, which he exhibited at the Salon des Arts ménagers and then the Salon des Artistes décorateurs. 

    It was a great success with the general public and quickly aroused the interest of publishers. Pierre Guariche then created furniture, lighting and decorative objects for Airborne, Pierre Disderot and Steiner. 

    In 1954, he also joined forces with the decorators Michel Mortier and Joseph-André Motte, with whom he founded the Atelier de recherche plastique. 
    The ARP then devoted itself to the creation of furniture for the living room, dining room and bedroom for Charles Minvielle. 

    At the end of the 1950s, as artistic director of the Belgian furniture manufacturing company Meurop, he gradually turned to interior design. 
    In 1965 he was awarded the René Gabriel prize. 

    Pierre Guariche's original creations have become iconic pieces such as the Amsterdam chair, known as the Tonneau, in folded plywood (1954), the Double Balancier floor lamp (1952), the Cerf-volant wall lamp (1953), the Vampire armchair (1954), the Tulipe chair (1956) or the Président desk (1961). They were exhibited several times in the early 2000s.
