Combining modernist designs with raw humanity and insect physiognomy, Philippe Hiquily became world-renowned for his biomorphic furniture and sculptures. Born in France in 1925, Philippe Hiquily spent more than a decade creating abstract figurative sculptures before turning his attention to producing his signature Philippe Hiquily furniture in 1960. Using his favorite sculptural material, metal, Philippe Hiquily's tables and sculptures were commissioned by numerous of his haute society peers. Today, his works are held in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Montreal.
His unique take on design objects like candle holders, armchairs, and tables has made Philippe Hiquily furniture a sought-after addition to some of the most important private art collections and residential interiors in the world. Today, owning a Philippe Hiquily table, sculpture, or decorative piece places you among the ranks of the most passionate art collectors and admirers around the globe.Read less
