Intérieurs modernes, Collection design du Centre Pompidou
Hôtel des Arts, ToulonPour cette nouvelle édition à l’Hôtel des Arts TPM la modernité est à l’honneur avec l’exposition «Intérieurs modernes, 1920-1930». Conçue sous le commissariat de Marie-Ange Brayer, conservatrice en charge de la collection design du Centre Pompidou et scénographié par Joachim Jirou-Najou.
À Travers des pièces exceptionnelles issues des collections du Centre Pompidou, du Centre National des Arts plastiques et du Musée des Arts Décoratifs de Paris, l’exposition retrace la modernité en France dans les années 1920-1930 et invite les visiteurs à s’immerger dans l’univers de plus de 50 designers parmi lesquels les icônes modernes Charlotte Perriand, Robet Mallet-Stevens, Pierre Chareau, Eileen Gray ou encore Djo-Bourgeois.
Joachim Jirou-Najou graduated in 2004 from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Paris with honors. In 2008, he was a finalist in the Design Parade 03 competition organized by the Villa Noailles, with whom he has since collaborated on a regular basis in the design of exhibition sets. After having shared his activity between a collaboration with Pierre Charpin and personal projects between 2004 and 2012, he created his studio at the beginning of 2013.
Drawing is for Joachim Jirou-Najou a founding element of his design practice and finds resonance in many projects and collaborations. He regularly collaborates with publishers, including Habitat for whom he designs various projects or the Danish company EO with the “Bear” carpet and the Floe coffee table, which marks the beginning of his collaboration with the Galerie kreo.
Elected one of the 10 designers of the year at the “Now! design à vivre” show in 2010, he was also the winner of the Agora design grant with the Dito collective in 2007, of which he is a founding member. Joachim Jirou-Najou was a resident at the Ateliers de Paris from 2013 to 2015. Two of his projects, the Portée series and the Nours disguise, have been acquired by the Centre National des Arts Plastiques (CNAP) for the collections of the Fonds National d’Art Contemporain (FNAC).
