Pierre Cardin Furniture

I like designing out-of-context, without the limitations of angles, corridors, rooms or walls. It’s all the same to me, whether I am doing sleeves for dresses or table legs.”

These are two of Cardin’s earliest designs … both are quite hard to come by these days. The first is the wooden Pyramide Unit, 1977, by Giacomo Passera for Pierre Cardin. The second is the Demi-line chest, 1978, which we recently spotted!

Pierre Cardin presented his first collection of haute couture furniture, called Utilitarian Sculptures in 1977 at the Evolution Gallery in Paris. He was not interested in function but rather in expressing his sculptural sensibility that was so wildly successful in fashion to a new medium. Incorporating his now famous love of geometric shapes and ‘space-age’ materials he created free standing functional sculpture.
