Pierre DISDEROT portrait

Pierre Disderot

1920 - 1990

An engineer by trade, in 1948 he opened an atelier in Cachan specialising in lighting. Drawn by modernism, in the 1950s he created and produced models by Michel Mortier, Pierre Guariche, Pierre Paulin, Joseph-André Motte and Alain Richard. Thanks to these high-profile designers, for three decades his company remained at the cutting-edge of lighting innovation in particular through the use of new materials: lacquered and perforated metal, Perspex, aluminium and stainless steel. In 1967-1968, Pierre Disderot moved to an atelier in Choisy Le Roi. The interior and graphic design of this ultra-modern space was entrusted to Alain Richard. Disderot was also entrusted with important interior design projects such as the Paquebot France cruise liner, Orly airport, the Maison de la Radio and UNESCO’s French headquarters. The furniture producer dedicated time to his designers to fine-tune and experiment on new prototypes. He also worked with architects, his main customers, on special orders.
