AC/AL

Design studio founded in Paris in 2013 by Amandine Chhor and Aïssa Logerot.

Both graduates from ENSCI Les Ateliers, they first made their own experience by working several years in design agencies and international companies like Hermès. From 2009 to 2012, they have been collaborating on contemporary design projects using sustainable craft techniques in developing countries like Cambodia, Morocco and Cameroun.

The studio creates objects with the aim to reach a perfect balance between function, form and techniques of production, depending of the companies' know-how and constraints. Passionate for materials, crafts and industrial manufacturing processes, they draw products and furniture that valorize usefulness and the rigor of simplicity. Their precise, elegant  and clean lines give their design its identity.

Mixing various collaborations and travel experiences, the studio likes new challenges and to work on different scales of project, from small product to interior design.
