Jean Boggio is a French goldsmith whose reputation expands well beyond his native country’s borders. As a craftsman and contemporary artist, some of his work draws inspiration from his childhood drawings, such as the Château or Architecture rings. Nourished by the tales of Perrault or the One Thousand and One Nights that he used to listen to as a child, Jean Boggio enjoys telling stories through his creations, where dreams and fantasy meet. He also applied himself to the decorative arts, designing wallpapers, furniture, tapestries and glass, ceramic and crystal pieces.
He imagined collections for the greatest French houses like Daum, Bacarat or Haviland where he was art director for 4 years. He also works a lot with Asia, especially Taiwan, but it is in the heart of the Beaujolais wine country that he enjoys working, far from urban turmoil, in surroundings more conducive to developing his imagination. It was natural that such an artist would one day collaborate with PINTON, creating rugs to share his vision and know-how.
