Two views of Patrick Naggar Scarab cabinet, represented in the U.S. by Ralph Pucci.

  Scarab, a cabinet that is 61 inches high and 41 inches wide, was designed by Patrick Naggar. He considers architecture as a central knowledge, encompassing interior design, furniture and product design, a catalyst of ideas, forms, plastic and artistic research, in order to create spaces and objects for our environment.

His designs all tell a story, according to Ralph Pucci, who represents him in the U.S., bringing myth and science, ancient and modern cultures, the functional and the symbolic closer together, mixing noble and poor materials.

Naggar's latest furniture, including the Aurora cabinet, will debut Oct. 24 at Pucci.

He has created numerous architectural and design projects in Europe and the US : prestigious private residences, apartments for art collector, art galleries or restaurants.

He is also present in the collections of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, les Amis du Musée National d’Art Moderne (Pompidou), le Mobilier National in France , the Brooklyn Museum in the U.S.

"A dialogue between art and science, blending of cultures and a strong poetic dimension are combined in his work to form an elegant modern language," says dealer Ralph Pucci.
