The design is Italian, the rest is production. And in Italy, design companies bear the names of the families that founded the brands. Like Tacchini, created in 1965 by Antonio, when production, too, was almost entirely Italian, and the most poetic and soul-stirring passages in the story of design were written. Naturally in time the children become the heirs, and the new founders, in a rationale of continuous updating and redefinition of the underlying idea, and that is what is actually handed down. Equally naturally, those who frequent the family become a part of it: team members, consultants, suppliers, employees, workers and clients.
Patrick Norguet, born in Tours in 1969, studied at the Superior School of Industrial Design in Paris. In 2000, he founded a design studio in Paris. For the last 10 years, the designer with an atypical trajectory has thus engraved his name on the international design scene with strokes of precision and determination.
Radical, Poetic and meticulous, Patrick Norguet loves the factories, the ateliers, the materials and the artisans who implement them, as well as deciphering the techniques and processes, with a real passion for innovations.
