Though Pierre Cardin, the inventor of "prêt-à-porter," is best known for fashion and accessory design, he also launched a unique furniture line during the 1970s that transposed his sculptural fashion sense into furniture design. From the acorn-shaped Nicola cabinet, and the sleek black Pyramide chest of drawers, to the Escape line of furnishings with interlocking jigsaw puzzle shapes, Cardin's dramatic pieces combine futuristic forms with traditional lacquer and cabinetmaking techniques, or feature revolutionary space-age forms in metal and plastics. This book presents dozens of furnishings by Cardin and a number of collaborators, often compared to the Cardin fashion pieces that inspired them.
"Equally captivating is the smooth still photography that runs throughout. The images ... ooze with the sentiment of their creator in the clean, uncluttered composition and unique viewpoints that photographers Jerome Faggiano and Nils Herrmann present."
