Born on 28 July 1965 in Chalons en Champagne, matali crasset is an industrial designer by training.
In the image of one of her emblematic objects, the hospitality column “quand jim monte à Paris”, she sets up her own methodology in which she questions the evidence of the codes that govern our daily life in order to better free herself from them and experiment. She thus develops new typologies articulated around principles such as modularity, appropriation, flexibility, network. Her work, which has imposed itself since the 90s as a refusal of pure form, is conceived as a research in movement, made of hypotheses rather than principles.
