A true heir to the French tradition of design and craftsmanship, Christopher Côme was raised in the artistic family of a renowned ceramicist and illustrator. His practice was influenced greatly by the French sculptor Louis Derbe, who taught Côme the technique of casting bronze.
Initially Côme was intrigued by jewelry design, but soon after, he began exploring furniture forms in his practice. His work is reminiscent of various mediums, from architectural wrought ironwork to contemporary sculpture to objects found in nature.
Côme’s inspiration for designs range from architectural wrought ironwork to contemporary sculpture to objects found in nature. Starting with conventional iron, he shapes and defines the forms through texture and oxidation producing distinctive finishes.
Côme pairs these objects with industrial crystal and molded glass lenses that he often transforms through carving, melting, and slumping. The metamorphosis of this raw industrial material through Come’s stylistic vocabulary creates objects that transcend time.
Due to his talent and hard work, Cristina Grajales approached this great interior designer and since 2012 he is an essential member of Cristina Grajales’s design gallery, where he discovers himself through his amazing creations of buffets and cabinets.
