Ferréol Babin

Born in 1987 in Dijon, France, Ferréol Babin after graduating in Space Design at ENSA of Dijon, moved to Japan to the Nagoya University of Art & Design, where he decided to focus on objects by realizing that through architecture and space, he couldn’t fully express himself. He soon noticed that light appeared to be his favorite material to work with, for its ability to be linked to both an object and the space surrounding it. In 2014, he was selected for a one-year residency to work at Fabrica, the Benetton’s communications research centre, based in Treviso, Italy where his projects included industrial design, scenography or conceptual installations. He is dedicated on making unique pieces, with an obvious brutalist yet delicate approach. His projects are always based on an awareness of rationality, combined with a poetic and emotional dimension.
