Established in 1987 by Michel Tortel, an architect by training, our studio initially focused solely on product design. In 1998 we added design of urban spaces alongside this core business, and then in 2002 expanded into architectural design.
The studio operated from Paris until 2005, since when it has been based in Aix en Provence and Toulon.
The studio draws on its expertise and prolific and varied experience, built up over more than 25 years, in project development, design, innovation and engineering. We have a back catalogue of many hundreds of products developed and brands supported through product design, urban design and architecture.
Our design studio has a unique profile thanks to its mastery of all elements of product design, brand development and architecture. This culture gives us an extraordinary creative wealth, which is paired with thorough technical rigour and guided by the constant quest for excellence.
Our expertise lies in creating concepts and products with intelligent design. Our products and spaces set standards and are designed to endure over time. We also produce the branding tools and environment to sell our designs.
