Éric Jourdan


Adept at precisely pared forms devoid of ornamentation, Jourdan has always been driven by what he considers the very essence of design: minimalism that is not boring. This formal precision earned him the 2013 Design Art Paris prize and a place in several museums. But his open mind prevents him sticking to a conventionally dogmatic vision of design and he is more than capable of ignoring received ideas in order to interpret the spirit of luxury with complete freedom.
