8sepAll DayJean-Marie MassaudBirthday


Event Details

Birthday: 08.09.66

Birthplace: Toulouse, France

The name Jean-Marie Massaud is often cited, when it comes to French design. Besides the Bouroullec brothers and Phillipe Starck, Massaud is one of the great designers of the Grande Nation. Less known than his work for Axor, Armanni and Cassina are his charitable efforts. Based on traditional Philippian woven houses, he designed accommodation for the people of Cebu, Philippines, who live on a rubbish dump. What’s even more special, is that the people themselves have woven the walls of their new homes. Photo: cropped version; original by MEDEF; license CC BY-SA 2.0
