matali crasset, born in 1965, is by training an industrial designer,. After her initial experience with Denis Santachiara Italy and with Philippe Starck in France, she set up her own studio in Paris, in an old renovated printworks in the heart of Belleville. It is there, among children and neighbours, that she dreams up her projects.
Since the 1990s, she has been looking at her profession of designer in a global fashion. With a view of the world that is both expert and always new, she questions the obviousness of the codes so that she can be more free of them.
matali crasset works with a variety of actors, just as easily with the curious craftsman as with an individual in search of a new life scenario. Always in search of new territories to explore, she collaborates with eclectic worlds, from crafts to electronic music, from the textiles industry to fair trade, realising projects in set design, furniture, architecture, graphics, collaborations with artists, and so on.
