Christophe Côme

Based in Paris, Côme creates sculptural furniture and lighting design through his manipulation of industrial materials forming elegant and timeless works of art.

Originally trained as a sculptor, Christophe Côme works with wrought iron that is paired with industrial glass and crystal producing unique objects.  Shaped by hand, the fine quality of craftsmanship is evident in the attention to detail.  Fascinated with the characteristics of glass, Côme pushes the limits of the material through carving, melting, slumping and molding to form remarkable sculptures of light.

Sources of inspiration for designs range from architectural wrought ironwork to contemporary sculpture to objects found in nature. Côme is an avid observer of the world and his perspective form the idiosyncrasies found in his designs.  A true heir to the French tradition of modern design, his works evoke the architectural austerity of Pierre Chareau and echo the modern sensibility towards materials found in the work of Jean Royére.  Nevertheless, Côme’s work speaks with a unique voice that is surprisingly contemporary with his use of pure forms.

Christophe Côme has a remarkable ability to elevate everyday objects to works of art.  This exhibition will focus on a collection of unique furniture and lighting designs that illustrate the progression and experimentation in Christophe Côme’s work over the years.   Cristina Grajales Inc is pleased to publish a limited edition book to accompany the exhibition.

Côme studied under the French sculptor Louis Derbe where he learned the technique of casting bronze.

After a visit to a glass studio in 1995, he began incorporating glass into his pieces. The addition of this medium revolutionized his work.
