Matali Crasset is a French industrial designer. In the 1990s, she worked as an apprentice for two outstanding masters of design: Philippe Starck in France and Denis Santachiara in Italy. In 1998, in the Paris quarter of Belleville, she set up her company: Matali Crasset Productions. Her designs are created by observing the world with constantly new eyes, calling into question pre-established codes in order to surpass them. Her continuing research prompts her to cooperate in many different directions - with private individuals seeking a new home context, large industrial concerns wishing to innovate, hotels in search of a new concept, and museums wanting a face lift. Her proposals are not limited to improving what already exists, they formulate new logics that rotate around modularity and interlinking concepts.
