Portrait Jean-Marie Massaud

Since graduating from Paris’ ENSCI-Les Ateliers in 1990, Jean-Marie Massaud has worked on projects in a vast range of scales and contexts. From a volcano-inspired football stadium in Mexico to a ‘Manned Cloud’ airship concept for ONERA to award-winning objects for everyday use, his work seeks to renew its subject through a thoughtful reconsideration of the stakes and an instinctive quest for elegance and lightness.

Internationally renowned designer Jean-Marie Massaud explores the possibilities for extreme refinement, individuality and sculpturality in the bathroom. Drawing inspiration from the French tradition of art décoratif, he challenges us to look beyond typical die-casting techniques and standard finishes for faucets. Defining luxury as a layer of added value — a layer of culture and legacy, transposed on the contemporary world—he reinterprets the spirit of art décoratif for today.
