For me, design has to engage mind and body, and not just catch the eye. It is a synthesis and a balance between the visual arts and architecture. In a work of art, body participation is limited; in architecture the body inahbits space, moves about in it but does not touch it so to speak. It is not tactile. Design fills all the conditions of a work of art: all the senses are called on. At the beginning of my career I made the furniture I designed myself and distributed my creations, which were mainly single pieces or limited series, at the Galerie En Attendant les Barbares. At the time I was looking for the hidden dimension in the design of my pieces: the function was not immediately perceptible. I was looking for balance between form and function. The best example of this period is ‘Gazelle’ (1986).
