Ferréol Babin was born in March 1987 in Dijon, France.
After first graduating in Space Design in ENSA of Dijon, he moved to Japan, to the Nagoya University of Art & Design. In 2012 he graduated from ESAD of Reims, in Object Design. Soon, light appeared to be his favourite material to work with, thanks to its ability to be linked to both an object and the space surrounding it.
Ferréol Babin dedicates half of his time collaborating with various furniture and lighting editors where he can incorporate his singular vision and approach of design. The other half is spent on making unique pieces, with an obvious brutalist yet delicate approach.
Dirty-hands, mix of mediums such as painting, sculpture, design and handcraft play their role in each of his creation.
His projects are always based on an awareness of function and rationality, combined with a poetic and emotional dimension.
