Every day we ask a designer to take a selfie and give us an inside look at their lives.
Occupation: Designer and furniture maker
Hometown: Blois, France
Studio location: Montreuil (a suburb of Paris)
Describe what you make: I create furniture-art, which always begins with a very simple sketch of elegant, undulating lines. Once I’ve found the perfect balance on paper, I head to my studio to give the lines form.
The most important thing you’ve designed to date: I was given the opportunity to create a collection of seating and tables for the amazing Harcourt Studio in Paris last year. The result was something very different from what I’ve done in the past. I always welcome the challenge of custom or limited-edition creations for specific clients, as it pushes me in unexpected ways.
The problem your work solves: The fact that everything I make can be customized adds a versatility that I think designers really welcome. My work also uses shapes that are very organic, so they blend well with any interior style.
What you are working on now: I just finished the Wave desk for my U.S. launch. Crafted by hand from American walnut, it’s a sculptural ripple with generous curves that command any space it inhabits.
