Biography

Pierre Guariche
1926-1995


The French designer is best known for his high-quality affordable, rational and industrial lightings and furniture. Pierre Guariche specialized in chairs, inventing, in 1954, the first moulded plywood chair: the “Tonneau”. Seeing himself first as an architect, he also designed many private and public spaces as well as several ski stations, rapidly expanding then, with an emphasis on form and volume.
