a meaningful art of living"
Flavien Delbergue has earned solid experiences in
Japan and Scandinavian countries, where he perceives new ways of impacting our societies through creativity as a vector of meaning and emotion. Then, he founded his design studio in Paris
The studio, engaged in a constant dialogue with its
clients and partners, pays close attention to the state of mind of a brand and contributes to broadening its universe through new perspectives on its know-how.

With its passion, freshness and engagement, the Flavien Delbergue studio strives to offer its clients and partners high-impact solutions for our daily lives. Convinced that a meaningful art of living improves the quality and comfort of life in our societies, the studio designs and develops products and interiors that are part of this approach.
Everyday objects question Flavien by their uses and
the way of appropriating them through each culture.
According to him, the meaning of the objects is inherent to the way we draw them. Outlines instill the state of mind. Thus, the studio is driven by this spirit and gives back to the objects their place for domestic, tertiary and hospitality spaces.
It is based on a global and singular approach. Each
project becomes an immersive journey where lifestyle,
cultures and know-how are placed at the heart of the
concept. The studio’s practice is based on an intuitive
sense of the product, a sense of the necessity. The
function must be obvious. The essence of the material
is brought to light by simple transformations which
they has become a signature of the Flavien Delbergue - Design studio.
This modest approach to the material with a work of contrasts textures and a sense of details contribute to create timeless and balanced products.
