Vandel, Pierre

Pierre Vandel (1939) is a French furniture designer. He is best known for his furniture in a glamorous yet minimalist style. His work included dining tables, side tables, desks, and coffee tables with aluminum, lacquered wood, or plexiglass frames with brass details and glass tops.

Vandel had a vocational training in industrial assembly and design, before joining a research team at the prestigious engineering and research schools Ponts et Chaussées and Arts et Métiers in Paris. In 1969 Vandel met the fashion designer Pierre Cardin, who helped him start a successful international career. Cardin encouraged him to create his own brand, Pierre Vandel – Paris, and connected him with the rich and famous, who purchased his designs.
