A designer and art historian, Fabien Petiot adopts a multidisciplinary approach informed by his knowledge of art and his forward-looking stance towards artisanal and industrial production. He has written extensively and curated conferences and exhibitions. As a designer, he pays attention to the dialogue between crafts. His collaboration with stonemasons, ceramicists, carpenters, etc. nourishes his own research. He’s focused on lighting, but also on textiles and more broadly on furniture.
