François Azambourg has designed for Cappellini, Hermès, Ligne Roset-Cinna, Poltrona Frau, Toulemonde Bochart, and La Galerie kreo to name just a few.
He is as interested in developing new processes as he is in traditional techniques. He bases his work on research. Bringing an innovative approach to his materials, he interrogates issues around tension in particular. His craft is dedicated to allying technology with classic applied arts and continually focuses on using resources economically, leaving the lightest of traces.
Having won the Villa Kujoyama prize in 2015, the Grand Prix du Design de Paris in 2004, the Villa Médicis Hors les Murs prize in 2003, the Fondation Marcel Bleustein-Blanchet’s Prix de la Vocation in 1993, the Fondation de France prize in 1988 and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs competition in 1985, he has been supported by the VIA during five project proposals and a Carte Blanche grant in 2005.
