Cédric Ragot set up his own design studio after graduating from the French National Institute for Advanced Studies in Design, I`ENSCI-Les Ateliers. Among other things, he designs furniture for some of today’s leading furniture manufacturers.
In doing so, Cédric Ragot remains true to his philosophy: “There’s a great deal of variation in the way the visible part of my works can turn out…in any case, however, I try to find a surprising solution to a given task. This means I have to combine the functional appearance of an object with a suggested conceptual and stylistic solution in order to create greater possibilities of choice corresponding to everybody’s emotional and spiritual longings.”
As a fascinating interpretation of social changes in the digital age, the »Fast« collection makes an impressive statement. Frozen in digital acceleration, the objects reflect the archetype of the vases from the Ming dynasty. Metaphorical decoration and unusual styling give the impression of movement, thereby drawing parallels with the fast pace of modern life.
