Maria Pergay just passed away on October 31, 2023, she was 93 years old.
Her career began in the 1950s, when she worked with silver to create window displays for Parisian boutiques, and her designs quickly made her a major creative in the city with commissions from the likes of Hermès and Christian Dior. While the silver pieces she created challenged current trends and set the tone for a unique approach to design, they also became precursors to her exploration of stainless steel, a material she favored throughout her career. “Steel talks to me,” Pergay told Wallpaper in 2013. 'If it is willing to obey, it is like a tamed animal. But when it's bad it's a slap in the face. Luckily I didn't receive much of it.
Pergay played a key role in the contemporary design canon and her work has inspired younger generations from both an aesthetic and conceptual perspective. While her designs will be championed by the likes of Demisch Danant to be preserved and celebrated for the future, her pioneering spirit will live on through the mark she left on the design world.
