Sonogonos, a musical break to enjoy the sound of the wind or the movement of our body that relaxes, outside and inside. The carillon lounge chair, edited in 8 copies by Galerie MICA, is the result of Pierre Charrié's long research work on sound. The MICA Gallery inscribes a new sound object to its collection which reveals a remarkable creative impulse associated with the know-how of the craftsmen and woodworker of the region.
The Galerie MICA designs, produces and sells contemporary art objects. The works created are the product of uniting different crafts in Brittany as well as creative trades in both France and abroad.
Through its network of partners, the Galerie MICA brings together different creatives, initiates research, and experiments with new objects and experiences.
Combining material, craftsmanship, ingenuity and skill and all done in a collective sense.
After his studies at the Beaux-Arts de Nîmes, Pierre Charrié turned to design and was awarded his degree from the ENSCI-Les Ateliers in 2008. He gained his experience in product and furniture design with a variety of different companies, and is now a freelance creative.
As the child of a musician and an occupational therapist, he is intrigued by everyday objects’ sensory qualities. Sound, movement or touch are used to question uses and create new interactions. With VIA, he developed Aérobie, a lamp that measures the quality of the air around us which would go on to win a spot in the Centre National des Arts Plastiques’ collection. His Surfaces Sonores project won an Agora grant in 2013 and the Grand Prix de la Création de la Ville de Paris in 2015. In 2016, Maison&Objet included him on their list of Talents à la Carte, while Elle Décoration France named him its Young Designer of the Year 2017.
His work is retailed by Ligne Roset, Moustache, the Galerie MICA and the Great Design Gallery.
