To identify oneself in a profession is often much simpler than to defend a free status which escapes limited definition. Current design is a universe which is more and more multifaceted. A society that mixes needs and desires, dreams and reality, can only generate multiple expressions, diversified, faceted and complex objects. Raphaël Charles (1979) is – by his own definition, a self-educated creator of objects. Far from being the result of a “materialistic” desire, his creations are born rather from the need to materialise the desire to put into perspective fast evolution, a hyperconsumerism of ideas, things, time…The object suspends time, is positioned in space like an interface and produces lasting relations.
