Norguet (1969, France) made his breakthrough as a designer at the end of the nineteen-nineties. With his sense of colour, formal restraint and elegant purity coupled with character and his continual search for comfort, it’s not surprising that he started designing for Artifort in 2002. In this year he designed the characteristic Apollo armchair followed by various successful pieces. Various museums around the world have included products designed by him in their collections. Norguet is also celebrated for designing high-end offices, the Okko hotels and the McDonalds restaurant on the Champs-Elysées in Paris. In 2014, GQ Magazine voted him ‘Designer of the Year 2014’.
