environmental designer, stylist, teacher

Jean-Charles de Castelbajac’s decoration is a logical follow-on from his fashion work. He sidetracks the great classics of furniture history, strips them down and gives them a new life by instilling his style into them. As he remarks: ‘My work is the opposite to that of a designer. I practise a sort of contemporary archaeology’. He is interested in everything. Even the most ordinary pieces. From the sofa to the doorknob, not to mention the light switch, the chair, the table and the lamp. But each object remains independent from the others. ‘I don’t want to stifle the personality of the people who use these things by my own work. I’m against the total look’. His furniture pieces and objects are designed to fit in with style elements from different periods.
