The Palais Bulle in Théoulesur-Mer, owned by Cardin,furnished with SculpturesUtilitaires.
“They seemed to be like twenty but were only ten. Years marked by music, by different looks, from the jackets of Cardin, from all over. ” Paul McCartney,
from the book “The Beatles”.

“It’s silly to place a piece of furniture against a wall.
If my furniture is «recto verso», it’s because it can be viewed from all angles. From behind to its front”.

The result is a luxurious collection of beds, tables, cupboards, chairs, lamps, sculptures that have been around the world, not only furnishing homes of many celebrities, but also they were present in prestigious art gallery in New York, London, Paris, Monaco and many other locations and cities.

FORME company now presents to the public the original collection, re-edited by the talented sculptor-designer Rodrigo Basilicati, grandson of the designer Cardin.
Kaleidoscopic experimenter of forms and materials, Rodrigo creates Sculpures Utilitaires with a team of expert wood-craftsmen, giving a personal style, but always in perfect harmony and continuity with his uncle’s style.
