The contest mentor
Trained at Ensci-Les Ateliers, François Clerc now divides his time between Paris, London and Taipei. Passionate about botany, the 36-year-old designer draws inspiration from nature to create everyday objects. Sensitive to the quality of materials and manufacturing processes, François Clerc also takes environmental considerations into account in the production of his objects. This particular look at industrial production has recently borne fruit with a brand of organic products sold in Taiwan and numerous collaborations with Nature et Découvertes.
