Patrick Norguet

Patrick Norguet (b. 1969) was educated at the Superior School of Industrial Design in Paris, where he is still based, and is fast becoming a noted name in his field. He has collaborated with Louis Vuitton as a decorator, designing concepts for display windows and events. He more recently designed the showrooms for Renault Cars in Paris and Tokyo and has designed furniture pieces for Cappellini and Artifort. In Paris, where McDonald’s restaurants can often have lavish modern interiors, Norguet has designed many, proving that he can adapt and create something unique in almost any surrounding. Today he creates products for Cappellini, Fasem, Poltrona Frau, Lapalma, Offecct, Crassevig, GlasItalia, Flaminia, Thonnet Vienna, Modus, Watsberg, Artifort, and Accor.
The foundations of Artifort were laid by Jules Wagemans. In 1890, he set up business as an upholsterer in Maastricht. His son, Henricus Wagemans, expanded the company into a furniture factory, which had a showroom in Amsterdam by the end of the 1930’s and was already well known nationally. The economic recession of the nineteen thirties forced H. Wagemans & Van Tuinen, as the furniture company was then known, to create a distinctive profile. The emphasis came to lie on functionality, comfort, and quality combined with aesthetically pleasing design and an innovative use of materials. The new brand name became Artifort, derived from the Latin word 'ars' meaning “art or knowledge”, and 'fortis' meaning “strong or powerful.”
