Frédéric Forest graduated from ENSCI/Les Ateliers in Paris. While still a student, he worked alongside consultant Jocelyne Imbert on projects for Cartier leather goods. In 2000, he left France for Italy and the Adidas Advanced Design Studio in Montebelluna, where he designed the brand’s high-end sports shoe range.
In 2004, he worked as a brand vision project manager for international luxury companies, where he used his unique and hyperactive approach to develop inventive solutions for brand image, visual identity and product design. After various collaborative experiences with designers Erwan and Ronan Bouroullec, Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance and Jean-Marie Massaud on product and space design projects with strong technological and artistic content, he created his own design studio with Clémentine Giaconia in 2008.
