Patrick Jouin, designer whose creativity finds its expression through decorative arts in the field of industrial design, as created for FIAM the Aura showcase in curved glass and Magma table in glass.
Patrick Jouin was born in Nantes, France, in 1967 and obtained his degree in 1992 at the ENSCI- Les ateliers in Paris.
Through the partnerships with major companies, such as Cassina, Kartell, Alessi, Puiforcat, JC Decaux, Fermob, Pedrali, Busnelli and Fiam and through his exceptional projects, Patrick found its place in international design where only few know how to evolve with both ease and strength as he does.
The Patrick Jouin ID studio deals with not only industrial design but also with interior design through the Jouin Manku Stydio, which he started in 2006 in association with his colleague Sanjit Manku.
For Patrick and Sanjit, the lines between architecture and design cease to exist, every aspect of a space, from ceiling height to door handle, spoon to staircase, is an opportunity to demonstrate their combined vision of objects, spaces and structures.
