Products by Marie-Aurore Stiker-Metral
Born in Paris on 15th March 1981 and graduated from ENSCI-Les Ateliers in December 2007: she underwent this design-oriented training after studying philosophy for four years, including one year at d'Urbino university in Italy. During her time at ENSCI, she obtained a bursary from VIA to develop her 'La Pliée' chair, which is now being produced by ligne roset. In conjunction with Felipe Ribon she was the winner of the competition 'L'eau à la bouche', organised by Veolia Eau. Her final dissertation, mentored by Philippe Louguet, dealt with the 'paradoxes of discretion'; her graduation project, mentored by Erwan Bouroullec, explored a range of 'domestic techniques' (sewing, embroidery, lace, macramé, weaving), using them to create furniture (storage, a fireside chair, a lamp) with digitally-cut wooden frames and textile surfaces.
