Combining the traditional techniques of art and console tables making, with digital design and metalworking, French designer Erwan Boulloud draws a collection of unique pieces pushing boundaries of furniture manufacturing as sculptural and functional creations. Furniture with an expressive feature, post-industrial look and refine handcraft.
Born in France 1973, the interior designer shares with some of the best designers a common start attending the prestigious Ecole Boulle in Paris. A reference to nurturing a generation of artists, Ecole Boulle provided a young Erwan Boulloud with skills in fine arts, craft and applied arts which will define his career.
After his graduation in 1995, he worked as set designer for collections at some of the greatest Parisian arts institutions such as the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (le CNAM) and for museums like The Louvre and Museum of Natural History in Paris.

When in 2003, Erwan opened his own workshop in Paris, he was already an established designer renewed for his artistic and fresh approach to craftsmanship. In recent time he moved his Atelier in Pantin, a picturesque river town, northeast of Paris.
Every piece of Erwan Boulloud collection resonates as a museum creation, where the material craft is glorified by detailing the matter with marquetry, and scenographic finishing. Know-how on materials properties and heritage is the prelude to each creation, allowing the sculpture to forge unique objects that balance strong core with sophisticated finishing.
By combining metal, wood, concrete, glass with minerals or vegetables Erwan Boulloud pushes the limit of the manufacturing possibilities. Every object reveals the profundity and symbolic feature of the material, which can be raw, burnt, polished, decorticated, or reconstituted under the savvy touch of Erwan Boulloud.
