Industrielle, matali crasset is industrial designer of formation. In
agreement with one of her emblematic objets, the column of hospitality
“When Jim goes up to Paris” , she puts a clean methodology in which
she questions the evidence of the codes that governs our daily life to
free oneselves better of it and to experiment. Thus she develops new
typologies articulated around principes as the modularity, the
appropriation, the flexibility, the network. Her work that has imposed
itself from the years 90 as the refusal of the pure shape, conceives itself
like a research in movement, made of hypotheses more than of
principles. She collaborates whith eclectic universes, from the handicraft
to the electronic music, from the scenography to the furniture, from the
graphics to the interor architecture.
matali crasset spent her chilhood in a small village in the north of
France, in a farm where work and life were intimately bound.
