Pierre Charpin was born in 1962 in Saint-MandÃ© (Paris). An artist by education, his devotion to the design of furniture and objects dates from the beginning of the 1990s. In 2004 he won a competition for the design of a water carafe for the SociÃ©tÃ© Anonyme de Gestion des Eaux de Paris (Paris Waterworks), the carafe "Eau de Paris".
Charpins "Triplo" vase, produced by Venini, appears in the selection of the Compasso d Oro 2005. He was elected Creator of the Year (2005) by the Paris Furniture Fair. He has several personal shows and several of his pieces are included in the collections of the FNAC (National Foundation for Contemporary Art) of the Georges Pompidou center and of the Decorative Arts Museum of Paris.
