To kick off the new year, world-famous auctioning house Sotheby’s stages a Pierre Cardin exhibition
in its Parisian outpost. And though, yes, we are talking about the renowned futuristic couturier Pierre Cardin, this exhibition puts a different aspect of his oeuvre in the spotlight. In the Seventies, Cardin was a talented designer of lacquered furniture as well as a successful fashion designer, objects he dubbed ‘sculptures utilitaires’, or ‘functional sculptures’. This exhibition gathers 25 chairs, lamps and other objects in materials such as ebony, Macassar, rubber, steel and polyurethane.
17 January until 24 January
