Henri Delord and Jean-Pierre Garrault

Henri Delord is a French designer, recipient of a Zellidja scholarship, he met designer Jean-Pierre Garrault during this event. From 1970 until 1977, the two of them joined forces to form a duo that left its mark on French design.

They got along so well that they decided to partner up in November 1970, forming a well-known tandem that lasted for 7 years (1970-1977). Versatile, they were interested in all aspects of living spaces - furniture, flooring and wall coverings, lighting, and interior architecture.

They had a taste for lines that emphasized architecture or an object; their love for bright colors was evident in almost all of their creations. As painters, they created multiple pieces in thermoformed plastic accented with colorful patterns. The Museum of Modern Art in Paris dedicated an exhibition to them, showcasing monumental sculptures with vibrant colors and well-paced lines.

Together, they notably created the famous "Sol au plafond" floor-to-ceiling lamp in 1971. It consisted of a luminous globe mounted on a metal structure connecting the floor and ceiling, with various versions of this lighting fixture emerging over time. These lighting sets were presented in 1972 at the Eurodomus exhibition in Turin and later produced by Chabrières.
