As well as a fashion designer he also designed a large amount of furniture. Cardin was known for his avant garde style and his ‘space age’ designs. These designs are so well executed that they are timeless and work in a diverse range of interiors. He has been quoted as describing his furniture as “the opposite of straight sober clean lines, it is furniture made up of organic cells; all I did was reveal their aesthetic quality”. He worked largely with wood and new generation lacquers with a unique quality that is represented through attention to detail and precision.
