Eric Jourdan is a Parisian designer known for his classic modernist furniture. Jourdan was born in 1961 to a family of architects and obtained his education at both Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Saint Etienne and Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Many of his pieces have a clean, simple appearance but are also functional. Some of his previous projects include furniture for Cartier in 1991 and the Thomson project with Philippe Starck in 1993. In 2000, Jourdan had an exhibition at the Galerie Gilles Peyroulet. He created the Snowdonia line in 2006, which has the same eye-catching curves as many of his other pieces. His work for Ligne Roset is a prime example of this dynamic aesthetic he focuses on. One piece is the Hyannis Port bar cabinet — a sleek design with rounded corners and chrome handles set against an espresso finish. Another is the Riga armchair, which makes a stylish statement that features mechanically soldered pieces to create shapely curves. One of Jourdan’s most recent offerings is the Shaman collection. This line contains pieces that are contemporary yet timeless, such as a gray leather armchair that comes with a matching ottoman. In 2017, Jourdan’s solo exhibition debuted at the Granville Gallery in Paris, France.
