PIERRE-YVES GUENEC

PYG

Born NANTES, France, 1990

A French interior, furniture and object designer, Guénec welds together centuries-old traditions and hypermodern aesthetics in a search for absolute truth. Bringing together ancient spirituality and contemporary technology, Guénec transfigures materials to reveal their innate beauty. Particularly fascinated with the permanence of objects and the strength of symbols, He reimagines the mysteries of the past and anticipates possibilities for the future to create a unique dance between tradition and innovation

At his multidisciplinary studio, Guénec foregrounds technique along with a bold artistic vision. He honed his deep respect and understanding for the highest level of artistry during his six-year tenure at Atelier Saint Jacques. There, he worked with legendary architects and designers, including Mathieu Lehanneur, Noe Duchaufour-Lawrance, Konstantin Grcic, Peter Marino, Joseph Dirand, and Jean Nouvel, developing the hands-on knowledge and global vision that distinguishes his approach. Each of his pieces is handmade and co-signed by the finest French and European artisans

Born in Nantes, Guénec grew up in an artistic, literary, musical and spiritual environment. After studying at the Ateliers de Sevres, he matriculated at the École Nationale des Beaux-Arts before boldly leaving academia to apprentice with master artisans around Europe. In 2022, he founded his creative studio, based between Paris and New YorK

Tower of Babel lamp

Exclusively for studiotwentyseven, The Tower of Babel LAMP is guenec’s singular and contemporary reimagining of the parable of the same name. Deeply researched and considered, the lamp exudes the patina of history, the miracle of humanity, and the richness of our shared mythology. The tale of the tower of babel tells the birth of different languages and bespeaks the power of communication to enlighten human society. this piece is an ode to its eponymous parable and a prayer for our divided world to remember the beauty of every culture

Guenec has transfigured the light of each language into modules, LAYERED atop one another to form a tower. Inspired by both classical and contemporary architecture, the Tower of Babel lamp is a modular system: It can be displayed as a simple module—on the ground, on a table, against a wall—or can become a monumental tower of light by stacking the modules

Crafted by some of the best French light engineers at atelier Pulsatil, The Tower of Babel consists of an aluminum structure, an LED lighting system, an alabaster diffusing shade and a solid, polished aged bronze ring shade. With a hidden electrical transformer inside of each modular, the tower can be stacked in any configuration, is available in custom sizes upon request, and is exclusively available at studiotwentyseven
