environmental designer, interior architect

École des Arts Appliqués Duperré

Eric Gizard is a free lance interior architect, a design feature writer for City Magazine, and a collaborator with the Nelly Rodi styling office (trends charts).

He designed the architecture and furniture for the Habitat chain stores

At the SNCF head office in Paris, he designed the presidential suites, including the famous Board room, for which he created an atmosphere of transparency that plays on contrasts.

He re-designed the furniture and all the interior layout of the Tourism space at the Ile de France Regional Advisory offices.

For Daum, he designed the entire boutique/museum project, transforming the Parisian store of the master glazier into an international showcase.

For the maker Repères, he imagined democratic furniture pieces such as “Paris’ and ‘Indochine’ whose simple forms respond to contemporary principles: lightness, fluidity, legibility.

For the maker Tarkett, he created a new generation of carpet slabs, working with designers of renown like Andrée Putman, Christian Ghion, Tsé&Tsé and Garouste et Bonetti…

Japan invited him to design the Chandelier feminine ready-to-wear boutique, which is one of the most trendy in all Tokyo.

In South Korea, he created Amélie, a tea & pastry parlour, full of humour, adapting his style to the manga spirit.

For Air France, Eric Gizard upgraded the colour scheme for new aircraft. At the same time he laid out VIP lounges at Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle, Houston and Montreal airports… using sober oak and aluminium and creating purpose-designed furniture and lighting.

For Patou perfumes, he developed new scenography to propel the prestige label into the 21st century.

With his resolutely contemporary style, he has re-deigned many private apartments and houses all over the world, including a five-storey Victorian house at Notting Hill in London.

He has also designed a series of consoles and tables in black lacquered glass with lacquered metal base for the maker Artelano

For these works and others he was awarded the Maison et Objet, Creator of the Year prize in 2005

At present, Eric Gizard is working on the design of a coffee cup for Hermès, a beauty space for SEPHORA stores, and colour schemes for the cabins of the new A380.
