"Architectural walk" from Christophe Pijay
A master class was held as part of the MosBuild exhibitionArchitectural Walk by Christophe Piye, French designer who designed the Memoria Black series for Vitra. Christophe Piye, Designer Bachelor and Master of Design. Graduated from the School of Design and Fashion in Milan. Christophe Piye's career began at Philippe Starck's office. In 1993 he opened his own design bureau. He worked with brands Yves Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton, Lacoste, Renault Serralunga, Shiseido, Whirpool and many others. christophepillet.com The master class began with Christophe Pillet recalling the beginning of his career and finding his own style. When I first started designing, modernism was very popular. Stylistically, I borrowed little from this direction in art, but borrowed its positive philosophy and universality. Design attracts me by the fact that we do not make a revolution, but simply make objects that we like.
Christophe Piye Master shared his views ondesign: according to Christophe Piye, objects for public spaces should not differ from furniture for private interiors. The designer mentioned another misconception - “a good thing must be big”. Also, Christophe Piye said that he makes really valuable items, but they do not take up much space in space. One of the favorite themes of the French designer is the connection between the past and the present. In my opinion, the thing has no age. The designer needs to use heritage and a modern approach. I do not create vintage, but my product has the best features from the past.
Christophe Pietand his work on interior design - a hotel in Paris, a restaurant in Casablanca, a hotel in Morocco. The more I do interior design, the more I realize that it is like creating a set. The atmosphere plays a big role, it has a similarity to the theater. It is important to show the reality that is based on the ideas of the company. In this case, the designer acts as a translator.
Christophe Piye According to the French master, heit was very interesting to work with Vitra, which offered him to create high quality bathroom furniture. I wanted to talk about the uniqueness of the company, about its experience and knowledge through subjects. In the case of Vitra, it is not always easy to understand whether it is furniture or sanitary ware - this is one of the differences from other manufacturers.
Christophe Piye at the end of the master class ChristophePiye answered questions from visitors to the event - architects, designers and journalists. Fans of the French master's creativity learned that in his youth Christophe Piye wanted to become a musician, that he had a team of 17 people. By the way, the designer, according to him, has an absolutely typical house in Paris. Christophe Piye also said that he really liked Moscow and its diverse architecture. This means that we can hope that the French designer will come to the capital with a new master class.

Arnaud De Jong, Fetim's spokesman, says they have applied new surface treatment and oiling technologies.
