Patrick E. Naggar
Architect, artist and designer, Patrick Naggar received his diploma in Architecture (DPLG) from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and a Master degree in Urban Studies from the University of Paris VIII. Naggar considers architecture as a central knowledge, encompassing interior design, furniture and product design, a catalyst of ideas, forms, plastic and artistic research, in order to create spaces and objects for our environment.
Bringing myth and science, ancient and modern cultures, the functional and the symbolic closer together, mixing noble and poor materials, his designs all tell us a story. Patrick Naggar has been showing in France since the mid-eighties, designing collections for Ecart International, Neotu, Tectona and Artelano.
