Founded in 1987 by Michel Tortel, an architect by training, the agency was initially entirely dedicated to product design. In 1998, in parallel with its main activity, it turned to space and urban projects, and in 2002 to architectural design.
Its dual culture of industrial and architectural design gives it a unique formal and conceptual approach, mastering extremely varied scales, knowledge and product life cycles, enriching the openness and effectiveness of its creative responses.
The agency has designed numerous best-sellers all over the world, notably in furniture and urban design for leading companies, but also for cities such as Shanghai, Delhi, Paris, Amiens, Milan, Puerto Rico and Rome.
Today the agency is part of a global design approach dedicated to companies and institutions for their product, brand and space innovation projects.
