Christophe Delcourt (1966-) is one of the best-known exponents of contemporary French design. Self-taught, he launched his own Delcourt Collection brand in 1995 which immediately attracted great interest and recognition, so much so that he was awarded the title of Designer of the Year at the 1999 Maison & Objet fair. In his Parisian atelier, Delcourt reinterprets the proverbial elegance of French decourateurs in the light of the design experiences of the 2000s, giving his furnishings solid sculptural forms and strong plastic values. Another key feature of Delcourt's work is his attention to the manufacturing quality of his products, the creation of which is entrusted to a network of small local artisans. In recent years Delcourt has also begun to collaborate with other brands, first of all the Italian Minotti which in 2017 chose him as its first external designer alongside the art director Rodolfo Dordoni. Other brands with which he has collaborated in recent years are Baxter, Pierre Frey, Collection Particulière, Roche Bobois, Wall & Decò and Van Rossum.
