« The studio defines a meaningful art of living as a set of careful gestures, forms and emotions in everyday life in its most humble way. An object must « make way » in our daily lives, and the studio distinguishes itself by its design based on simplicity, following the state of mind of the clients and partners. The relevance of a product, furniture, or interior lies in its capacity to welcome the human and thus become meaningful. »

At the age of 20, Flavien Delbergue has been immersed into Japanese craftsmanship’s state of mind. He has learned from several Kyoto-based crafts houses came together abroad under the name of Japan Handmade. He was wondered about the concept of sincerity in a design process and this experience has been fundamental for him. After graduating from École Boulle, Flavien has worked for Copenhagen design studio OEO Studio. There, he has perceived common values between Scandinavian countries and Japan. These rich experiences have founded his approach. He has engaged to open up to new territories and to encourage bridges between France and Japan. His design studio based in Paris was created in 2016. The same year, he took part in the Académie des Savoir-Faire organised by the Fondation d'entreprise Hermès. In 2018, he joined the Ateliers de Paris incubator. In 2019, he was finalist Design Parade Hyères 14 with the Asobi project. In 2020, he moved to his new office in Rue Primo Levi, Paris. Today, the studio works with brands, publishers and manufacturers mainly in France and Japan.  

エコール・ブール在学中、日本工芸とデンマーク・デザインという2種のアートを学んだフラヴィアン・デルベルグは、デザイン製作において常に「誠意」とは何かを問いかけてきた。2015年にデザイナーとして独立した彼にとって、この課題が軸となっており、日常生活で用いるオブジェをより正確かつ真の姿に近いものへと形づくる探求を深めている。2016年、パリに自身の事務所を構え、伝統工芸の職人やエディター、他さまざまな分野のプロフェッショナルな仲間との知恵や技の伝承・交流を通し、デザイン活動の幅を広げている。彼の創作活動は日本文化に大いなる影響を受けており、細部の素材にこだわりつつも簡潔でゆるやかな形状を基調とした機能性の高い作品が生まれる。空間・無の本質を追究しつつ、研ぎ澄まされた素材の魅力をひきだしながら、謙虚でバランスのとれた作品を目指す。2018年9月、アトリエ・ド・パリに属するアーティストの一員となる。また、フリーランス・デザイナーとしても様々なブランドとのアートワークを手掛けている。
