Charles Kalpakian

Hometown: Beirut

Lives and Works: Paris

 

Charles Kalpakian was born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1982. After collaborating with prestigious agencies including the Ora Ito and Christophe Pillet in 2011, he launched his design studio and develops his own projects.

He draws his inspiration from his roots in France and Lebanon, as well as street-art culture. ese in uences take shape through the reinterpretation of motifs derived from the decorative arts that were in turn inherited from the history and geography of Lebanon. Charles’ line of work is always sharp yet exible; almost like the strokes created by a calligraphic brush. Ranging from product to interior design, his ventures are always highlighting the richness of his origins while also combining the elements of Western modernity.

Charles has exposed his pieces for Galery BSL in Paris under the title “Cinétisme”. He also created the Rocky bu et for the brand LaChance. Since then, he works with companies and brands such as DCW, Habitat, Haymann Edition, Nemo lighting, Dupont Corian, Lelievre, PUIG, Fondation Luciano Benetton, and also takes on private commissions.
