About


Paul Couture is a french designer with a multidisciplinary approach including product design, craftwork investigation and illustration.

The studio is working and experimenting with craftsmen and local materials to transform rituals into contemporary objects. Conscient of its french cultural legacy to produce elegant pieces and images, a particular attention is given to the narrative content and to the poetry that lies inside every project.

Projects





The workshop design stories to magnify and intensify details, color or gesture, so that an object creates an emotion. Paul Couture Atelier is changing shapes into feelings, inspired by the ceremonial aspect of our daily life and driven by a will to create products and images that can reenchant our everyday.

Working with local materials, like Monterrey marble and lava stone in Mexico or Ash wood and porcelain in France, is a way to integrate craftmenship and durability during the production process. An accurate analyse of the nearby ressources and the ancestral knowledge to transform them, helps to control and reduce the impact of the workshop on the environnement while preserving valuable and artisanal wisdom.
