CC: What do you think about the position of contemporary collectible design on the design market? How do you think the contemporary collectible design market is evolving?
P: After the 2d World War, we had to go fast, to do efficient and not cheap parts. Now the market evolves with the research of part more sophisticated, more in the idea of unique collection.
CC: What tips would you give to a collector who wishes to start collecting contemporary design?
P: To come to visit us :) From our point of view, he needs to try to not do as the others (and forget the vintage : ) ). He should have the ability to create his own collection with his own vision.
CC: What do you think collectible design brings compared to other more massively produced pieces?
P: A unique touch, more rare, with the handcrafted quality, with know-how, with respect to craftsmen who manufacture their pieces.
CC: A book you recently read that inspire you
P: La fraternité sinon rien of Benoist de Sinety
CC: A place your recently visit and inspire you
P: Le couvent de la Salette
CC: What is your opinion on 3D designs and renderings compared to other more traditional ways of presenting design? How do you foresee evolutions in that domain: do you think it is a perenne practice or an ephemeral one that reflects our needs for escapism and imaginary spaces?
P: The 3D is a good solution is done in high quality that is as good as real pictures. However it remains a patch and it will not replace the 5 senses. To touch is wonderful!
