Who remembers Pierre Sala (1948-1989)? He was nevertheless a particularly active designer in the 1980s. Like his colleagues, Garouste & Bonetti, Philippe Starck and Martin Szekely, he is representative of French design during this period. Pierre Sala died very young and therefore did not unfortunately have an opportunity to be supported by a gallery. Not truly a designer, he was a director and a scenographer, considering his objects ‘mini-displays’. Rather than serving a functional purpose he preferred pieces of furniture to be seen as objects. He did however edit his work himself with Furnitur Editions. The Nid d’aigle shelf is a rare example of furniture from among his most noted works. It is a perfect example of design at the start of the 80s in France, characterised by a primary chromatic range reminiscent of the Italian brand Alchimia of the same period but sharply contrasting in terms of formal register.
