Pagnon & Pelhaître
In 1980 Patrick Pagnon and Claude Pelhaître created their own design agency: Pagnon & Pelhaître Design, specializing in furniture and architecture. "We want to create milestones, signs and products with those involved in economic and cultural life. We love shapes and especially the ambition that drives them. Our specialty is design and architecture: creating a number of products that generate the image of changes in lifestyles." Our projects are put together with the aim of imposing contemporary shapes that are constantly evolving, made with precision and quality." This is their vision of design.
Patrick Pagnon began his studies with an economics baccalaureate. Then he turned to preparation for the Académie Charpentier in Paris and continued his studies at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (ENSAD) for 5 years.
