(English) Nothing predestined Odile Mir to become a designer. The industry found her. It all began at the lighting manufacturer Delmas in Montauban, in southwestern France.
Odile Mir is a well-known artist. She imagines metallic sculptural works, covered with leather and paper, like second skins. Forms that recall, among other things, the female body.
She moved to this factory to make lighting and her own furniture (she had already taken to designing her own clothes). Something simple, durable and efficient, whose use offers freedom and comfort. With the same intuition as for her sculptures. In the 1970s, modernity prevailed. “ There were a lot of cheesy things,” she recalls. “ My designs stood out. ”
In search of innovation, a buyer from the Prisunic furniture shop came to visit the factory and asked the manager who the woman was who had been given the best worker in the company for a week, no less, no more. ” She’s the model maker having fun ! ” he replied. Her armchairs, lamps and tables, invented without thinking too much about it, were included in the brand’s mail order catalogue, alongside those of Gae Aulenti, Marc Held and Olivier Mourgue.

”When the factory burned down in a fire, my work tool was lost, ” says Odile. ”After this adventure, I continued to sculpt, almost as before. Fortunately, some private individuals were able to buy these lights and furniture. They passed them on to future generations.

Today, the interior designer Léonie Alma Mason, granddaughter of the designer, founder and director of LA.M Studio in Paris, is giving new life to Odile Mir’s design with the producing and reproducing of her prototypes, her commercialized productions and her archives.

Furniture and objects with an immediate modernity.
