The Petites Histoires collection (ÒLittle StoriesÓ) takes us to Sam BaronÕs dreamlike universe, where subtle collages mix with his sketches, adorning the objects with poetic and even a bit surrealistic narratives. The French designer takes up the decorative codes of Vista Alegre, personally inscribing them with unique and modern elegance. Small flowers, birds and other prints become motifs that freely compose sets of pieces designed for the most delicious moments of life.
Born in France in 1976, Sam Baron has a degree in Design from the cole Suprieure dÕArt et Design de Saint-tienne and has a post graduate degree from the cole Nationale Suprieure des Arts Dcoratifs in Paris. Baron continually reinterprets the traditional methods of construction, questioning in his work the usefulness of current production materials.
As an independent designer and consultant, Sam Baron has worked for brands such as Louis Vuitton, Vista Alegre, Bosa, L’îreal, Benetton and Dinh Van, and cooperates with design companies Ligne Roset, Christofle and Secondome Edizioni, among others. He is currently head of the Department of Design at Fabrica, the communication and research center of Benetton in Treviso.
