The work of French designer Sam Baron mixes up ideas of classic European elegance by reimagining traditional shapes and functions in stylish new forms. Through his eye, Portuguese ceiling ornaments are transformed into dining plates, sausages are envisioned in mouth-blown glass, and the boombox and VHS tape become ceramic sculptures. The baroque is given new life and a subdued contemporary finish in pieces such as a pair of conjoined Louis XVI chairs or painted porcelain bird sculptures. His unique vision has earned him recognition as one of the ten important designers of the next decade by Phillippe Starck, as well as the role of design director at Benetton’s communication research center, Fabrica, where he mentors a new generation of design innovators.
