Pinpin was created by the designer Christian Ghion and Michelin star awarded chef Pierre Gagnaire. The project is aimed at meeting the needs of its preparation in the kitchen, of serving it at the table and of its individual consumption. This attention to both the food itself and the ways in which it can be best appreciated and enjoyed is becoming increasingly widespread. Pinpin is a Bread basket designed especially for typical French bread, the best suited to accompany egg dishes. The long oval shape makes it perfect for holding baguette slices. The basket can be put directly into the oven to prepare and serve warm bread.
Born in 1958 in Montmorency, France, Christian Ghion received a Law degree in Paris in 1982. He later studied at the École du Louvre and the École Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle (ENSCI), graduating in 1987. That same year, along with Patrick Nadeau, he set up the Ghion-Nadeau practice. The firm's work on design objects, furniture, backs and interior design allowed Ghion to start making a name for himself as a designer: in 1990, the 'Grand Prix de la Création de la Ville de Paris' award was bestowed on him. He has lectured at the Écoles des Beaux Arts in Saint-Etienne, Reims and Rennes. He has created designs for many companies, including Nespresso, Laguiole, Salviati, Driade, Batimat, Sawaya & Moroni, Christian Dior, Salviati, Campari, Cappellini, Yves Saint Laurent and Poltrona Frau. His works are included in the permanent collections of the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Centre Georges Pompidou and the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris, and in many other collections across the globe.
