Paul Menand was born in 1987 and graduated from Marc Bloch University and the Ecole Supérieure of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg. He is an independent designer. In 2011 he won the competition for the Strasbourg Water Jug when he created one of the new objects representative of the Alsace Region. That same year he presented the “triplette” chair directly on the internet, a design that drew the attention of several editing houses and opened the way for a variety of additional projects. Paul has been selected by “About Design” as one of the 10 young designers to keep an eye on, stressing that his work is going back to the essence of design : function.
