See minimal furniture pieces by Philippe Malouin in Design Gallerist. Philippe Malouin, a native of Canada, holds a design diploma from the Eindhoven Design Academy, but also studied at the École Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle in Paris and at the University of Montreal.
He now works and lives in London, where he set up his studio in 2009. He is a post-office director, in other words, a practice of architectural and interior design. It has a vague and diverse portfolio that includes tables, rugs, chairs, lights, art objects and facilities.
The list of clients is renowned, includes for example, OTHR, Ace Hotel, Established & Sons, Roll & Hill, among others.
In his works he uses special materials, as mentioned by Malouin:”It’s based on geometry or 1950s and 1960s American minimal art: forms and shapes that I would want in my home, rather than trendy things. Design is evolving at the speed of fashion, and it’s not necessarily creating lasting pieces.”
Like the creation of a bulb consisting of a single brick, a Mollo armchair made up of foam, among others
Here are some of these works.
