The designer has always been inspired by Ober’s know-how. This French company, with every intention of staying French, boasts enticing values: high
standards, innovation, eco-responsibility and design culture. It was only natural then for the two to begin collaborating in 2013 on the design and development
of the new collections of decorative panels “Metal” and “Color”. A designer-industrial duet for a duo of materials that oppose and respond to each other. Patrick Norguet says
his collaboration with Ober is an amazing opportunity to create products with a label rich in know-how and tradition, and also geared toward the future and innovation .
Patrick Norguet approaches objects from a graphical perspective. As a child, he always preferred sketchbooks to textbooks.
A stint in industry and design studies mark the unusual profile of this constructive and yet avant garde designer. He first became recognized as a significant
member of the design community when his now famous Rainbow Chair caught the eye of Giulio Cappellini in 2000. Patrick Norguet sees design as an encounter with a manufacturer who shapes creative intent with technical, economic constraints and the expectations of a user he hopes to seduce discreetly, yet lastingly.
Always drawing inspiration from his surroundings, Patrick Norguet aims to create products whose relevance and modernity will withstand the test of time. Today, he is a leading player
on the international stage.
