Christophe Delcourt (b. 1966) is the author of some of the most iconic designs. Over the past twenty years, his name has become synonymous with French craftsmanship, elegance and contemporary cultural codes. Since 1995, he is producing his own furniture for Delcourt Collection and has collaborated with numerous companies, such as Roche Bobois, Minotti, Pierre Frey, Baxter, cc-tapis. This famous designer has created unforgettable objects for the Cartier showroom in Tokyo, the Four Seasons hotel in New York, Louis Vuitton offices in Paris, Barcelona and Hong Kong.
Delcourt likes to call himself an artisan or éditeur. He works with the best craftsmen (cabinet makers, ceramists, brass casting specialists, upholsterers, masons) and adapts his designs to the specific craft. He also collaborates with guest designers such as François Chamsour, Jean-Pierre Tortil, Tristan Auer, Charles Kalpakian, Vincent Dupont-Rougier and others. Each piece under the Delcourt Collection brand is a vivid example of the unbreakable link between the designer's idea and the craftsman’s art. The true French charm is born out of this superiority of elegance over simple showiness and effect.
The philosophy of his company is to create bespoke objects with pure forms, sensuous lines and art-inspired sculptural quality. “From the very beginning I was closely connected with art, theater and scenography. I always excelled at drawing and making things. My experience in theatre paved my way into design. When one creates sets, one understands a lot about how people move on stage and interact with objects, space and light, and how, in turn, objects influence these actions”. Hence the interest in materials that transmit light and the intricate balance between filled space and emptiness.
Delcourt's favourite material is wood. Its originality and versatility allow even the smallest details of the master’s idea to be realised in the final piece. Regardless of the method of processing, assembly and pattern, wood reveals its unique character each and every time. It combines strictness with flexibility and freedom.
All pieces of Delcourt Collection are designed to meet the technical limitations of the manual processing of materials, and follow the complex and high-tech know-how that Delcourt possesses.
Christophe Delcourt is fascinated by the traditional handicraft and by the intricacies of textile creation. He always pays special attention to fabrics and has developed his own collection of upholstery with many nuances of textures, patterns and shades. When developing collections, the designer relies on the power of drawing and sketching.
This pursuit of the individual and the unique led to adopting a philosophy of an atelier. Bespoke items can be adapted to any space, be it a private living room, a boutique, an office or a hotel lobby. Thus, the author brings unique feel to any solution, making each project unlike any other. It gives a great freedom of choice for customers. A base can supports a round, square or oval top, a table top can exist in different materials, colours and textures (from wood to marble, from light to dark, from glossy to matt), a sofa has an endless choice of shape, size and upholstery.
This bespoke individual approach resulted in a library of samples with all existing finishes that allow one to personalise any product from the catalog.
