After an exchange year studying industrial design at UDEM (Montréal University) in 2008, Charlotte Juillard graduated in 2011, receiving high praise for her graduation project named Morphose, produced in collaboration with the Manufacture de Sèvres. The next year, she joined La Fabrica – Benetton’s research and development centre in Treviso, Italy – and worked under Sam Baron. There, she developed various projects, including the Paralumi pendant light for Seletti, as well as an installation for the prestigious Italian brand Molteni.
After she had returned to France, Charlotte Juillard joined Les Ateliers de Paris in 2014 and decided to establish her own studio, working on a variety of projects ranging from object design to scenography. She is currently collaborating with
a number of clients such as Monoprix and Ligne Roset. For the latter, she designed the Brina desk, launched in 2015, as well as a number of new pieces to be unveiled at the September 2016 MAISON&OBJET PARIS show. She also creates and distributes limited edition and small series pieces, such as the Echoes speaker and a collection of vases named Les Brodées, all handmade one-off pieces.
At the September show, Charlotte Juillard will be showing a new collection named Lavastone, which highlights the qualities of lavic stone extracted from quarries in the region around Naples. With this project, her intention is to combine the raw quality of the material with feminine design and sensitivity.
