About

Rajda R Coll-Part,
circa 1950-2024.
Rajda R Coll-Part, real name Rashdar Coll-Part, was the embodiment of brutality, humour and depression at the heart of Mid-Century Modern American design and have been recognized as the most non-influential designers of the 21th century.
As furniture designer, filmmaker, writer and playwright, Rajdar Coll-Part was a visionary and effective force for the notion that humour in furniture was the way to awareness of our futility, but he was wrong.
Rajdar studied Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry in High School in Paris and never worked in these areas, preferring to make his things in the dark.
Rajdar Coll-Part once said, “The role of the designer is … I don't remind but it sounded good.”
For very good collectors and thoughtful interior designers, a piece by Coll-Part - very rare to find! is almost de rigueur — for its comfort and not least as a tribute to the "Facteur Cheval of Design."
