Matt Pokora for his Plugin collection

Plugin

Robin Hood, aka Mr. Pokora, proves he has more than one string to his bow by throwing himself into the decor. With his collection Plugin, the singer offers a range of furniture and accessories to his image. Interview and photos.

We recognize his voice on the air, his face on television and in magazines but we could have passed his furniture collection without imagining that he was the author. Yet, Matt Pokora has embarked on design by creating a line of graphic and inspired furniture. Simple, young and efficient, the collection Plugin by Mr Pokora introduce a new facet of the pop star. A nice surprise.

How was born this desire to launch a line of furniture?

Matt Pokora : I always liked the decor. As soon as I had my first home, I spent a lot of time looking for decorative elements and especially things that we did not see everywhere. Through research on the Internet and in journals, I started to really get passionate about it. And then, as I did not always find what I imagined, I started to call on creators to make some furniture according to my requests.

Why did you choose Exsud's designers to create this collection?

Matt Pokora : I met Charlotte (EXSUD) during one of my concerts in Poland, more than 4 years ago. She had organized an after-show in her hotel. As I loved the decor of the hotel, Charlotte told me that she was the one who created and manufactured all these elements of decoration. At the time, I had just moved into a new apartment in Paris and I took the opportunity to ask Charlotte to make me furniture following drawings I had done. That's how we came up with the idea of ​​creating and developing together the brand "PLUGIN".

Very concretely, what was your role in the creation of this line?

Matt Pokora : I work closely with Charlotte to whom I send drawings as soon as I have an idea of ​​a piece of decoration or a piece of furniture. A few months ago I found myself playing video games in my living room until no time so much that I felt like sitting on my brain! I said to myself "what if we made a chair in the shape of a pink brain halfway between chewing gum and a brains?" I called Charlotte in the wake and from that was born the armchair "braingum" of my collection.

How does this collection fit you?

Matt Pokora : It is a collection that remains totally accessible, easy to integrate into a home. I do not pretend to be a "designer" but I try to surprise with shapes and original materials.

What connection could you make between musical creation and design?

Matt Pokora : These two worlds are really very close. When I work on my tours, I try to dress the scene with elements of decoration that are out of the ordinary so that the audience leaves with images full eyes. The success of a concert also goes through all these elements. At home, it's a little the same, we decorate for ourselves but also for others. It's a reflection of our personality.

Is it a similar or different pleasure?

Matt Pokora : It is a similar pleasure because in both cases, the idea is to bring pleasure to people. I like this notion of sharing values, tastes and ideas ...

What is your favorite piece in this collection?
