Paris, France

Sebastien Cordoleani is Industrial Designer, trained at ENSCI – les Ateliers Saint Sabin, Paris. Since more than 10 years he works in close collaboration with manufacturers and craftsmen on the development of products and furniture. In particular he collaborates with the editors/publishers Moustache, Tolix, Gan Rugs, Ligne Roset and develops research projects in cooperation with craft workshops in France, Spain, Mexico, Taiwan and Japan, notably at the Villa Kujoyama in Kyoto and at the Villa Noailles in Hyères. His fascination for natural materials such as bamboo, wood, minerals and leather as well as the associated workmanship made him imagine another modality of creation – a production defined by the realization of works that are fabricated and mounted by hand: Archipel – Paris.
