While contemplating the industrial constraints of working with soldered steel wire, Amandine Chhor created Loop, a series of wall shelves.
After graduating from ENSCI-Les Ateliers, Amandine Chhor worked for five years in design agencies and for Hermès, as a designer and project manager.
In 2013, she founded a design studio with Aïssa Logerot in Paris, with an aim to create objects that tell a story and achieve a perfect balance between function, form and production technique. Passionate about materials, arts and crafts and industrial manufacturing processes, the pair designs products and furniture that highlight functionality and the rigour of simplicity.
"Interested in the existing bridges between industry and artisanal work, I envisage design as a way to create links between ‟savoir-faire” and to immerse myself in different contexts. The design evolves in contact with the material and the technique. Its transformation tells the story of the exchange between the designer and the editor. The resulting object is one of a particular encounter." Amandine Chhor
