 Design is a process by which anything can be made beautiful, useful, meaningful, appropriate or simply fun to use. 

 

Who is Sebastian Bergne? What did he design for Pierre Frey? 

Graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1990, the British designer Sebastian Bergne founded his design studio in the same time. Versatile, he is an industrial design consultant, editor, designer and supplier of custom-made objects. His creations are easily identifiable in their functional evidence and their worked simplicity. Recognized throughout the world, his work has been awarded numerous international design prizes and his creations are exhibited in museums such as the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Design Museum in London. He designed the KISS line for Pierre Frey, with compact and carefully proportioned volumes that question the traditional seating and challenge the relationship to the object.

KISS line, a unique know-how

Designer's words 

How would you describe the KISS furniture line? 

La ligne KISS est composée d'une chauffeuse, d'un guéridon et d'un ottoman.

 How would you summarize this furniture line a few words? 

the KISS line will be surprising, sculptural and comfortable. Traditionally you would construct a slipper chair or an armchair using four elements. But in this case, I've done it using three elements.

 Why did you choose to call the line "KISS"? 

It came from how the forms come together. They barely touch and that very slight touching of quite voluptuous forms for me is reminiscent of a kiss.

 What is the richness of these pieces? 

You have a huge choice of finishes for the outside surfaces. Different materials, varnishes of all colors possible. And that contrasts with the internal soft shapes, which are upholstered in fabrics, which allows the whole plot for different possibilities.

 What is the characteristic detail of the line? 

In my opinion, the most characteristic part of the line are the spaces between the shapes, between the forms. Generous volumes upholstered in a velvety fabric barely touch each other to form delicately balanced compositions, sensual and functional while leaving room for spaces, like breaths. The arrangement of shapes challenges the expected construction of furniture and questions our vision of traditional seating and its volumes.
