A sharp eye for form
Cédric Ragot, polymorphous designer, cultivates a transversal approach to industrial design and creativity in the broadest sense. While the manifestations of his vision are many and various, all evince an abiding interest in forward thinking and a clear, unequivocal reading of the object.
Ragot is active in a great many sectors, working with well-known brands like Paco Rabanne Parfums, Cappellini, Rosenthal, Veuve Clicquot, Panasonic, Roche Bobois, Alcatel, Swarovski, Schott, Krups, LaCie, Azzaro and Häagen-Dazs, to name just a few.
His creations have won him a string of honors, including a Good Design Award for his Fast vase with Rosenthal in 2007, a Wallpaper* Design Award for his Majordome pedestal tables with Roche Bobois in 2008, and two Reddot Design Awards, for the LaCie Flat Cables in 2009 and the Krups 3Mix 5000 Mixer, an emblematic product for the brand, in 2012.
In addition, certain of his pieces have been selected by the Fonds National d’Art Contemporain (French national contemporary art endowment) and are on view in Paris, Hanover, Vienna, New York and Milan.
