Elise Fouin was born in 1979 and received a diploma from the Boulle School. Her ‘Talent à la carte’ at the Maison & Objet Fair in 2010, and prize for ‘Face of Design’ in Berlin boosted her into the selection of designers highlighted in the French magazines Elle Decoration and Elle Maison. She practices the art of recycling focusing on the materials that are to become re-interpreted. In all her inventions, she favors the poetic touch. Elise supports sustainable development and enjoys taking the ‘finished material’ and turning it into a ‘raw material’. She has had exhibitions at the ToolsGallery and the Granville Gallery. Her focus is multidisciplinary: projects for luxury brands as well as large retailers, and is also working on layouts, product and furniture design.
