    Biography - Pierre Guariche (1926 – 1995)

    Born in 1926, Pierre Guariche, is one of the greatest French decorator and designer. He graduated from the « École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs » in Paris, where one of his teacher was René Gabriel, another great French designer. Then, Pierre Guariche integrated Marcel Gascoin’s studio as an internship and decided to found his own company in 1951.

    In 1953, he created with Michel Mortier and Joseph-André Motte, « l’Atelier de Recherche Plastique (ARP) », only to cease operations in 1957.
    Afterwards, Guariche became in charge of the furniture department of the Belgian firm Meurop and produced his own pieces. The first one who spread and manufactured his creations was Mai Gallery, followed by Airborne, Disderot for lights, Meubles TV, Les Huchers-Minvielle, Luminalite or Steiner for seats.

    On his behalf, in 1954, Pierre Guariche created the first molded plywood seat manufactured in France, the famous « tonneau » chair, a confortable and elegant design icon.

    In 1965, Pierre Guariche received the René Gabriel award and died in 1995.
