Christian Liaigre 1943 – 2020

I want to pay a very personal tribute to Christian Liaigre who passed a week ago  I have known and worked with Christian for many many years  He was an artistic inspiration and a true design master   His minimalist elegance his perceptual artistry his attention to excellence and his ability  to create remarkable environments were a gift to his clients and to those of us who were fortunate enough to work with him  Christian was an icon a visionary influencing both his contemporaries and the up and coming generation of designers  His work has been in my opinion incredibly important and timeless in its impact


In the years I knew him and collaborated with him I learned a lot from him in his ability to distill things to its essence and achieve a simplicity in the design that was elegant and sophisticated


Along with being a great artist, Christian was a great friend  I cherished my friendship with him  My heartfelt condolences to his loved ones and his design colleagues in his wonderful firm   I know they will continue his work and his legacy


Rest in peace Christian  All of us at Isometrix are thankful for the relationship and friendship we had with you and your teams   You will be missed but never forgotten
