It all started in my early 20's. I have always been attracted by furniture. My first steps in design came from a cabinet making shop that I have been establishing at 24. From the day I saw the LC2 chair from Le Corbusier, I knew that I wanted to be a designer forever.
I own a design studio named Topo Design from the past 20 years. I met my partner almost 20 years ago and we started our collaboration from that time. We decided to found the GPA design studio in order to «officialize» our work
I mostly design furniture for the contract market. Technology is the base. I often start from that.
I like challenges in searching for solutions. Airport seating, office furniture, etc. are my favorite specially when it's involving complex systems.
I teach industrial design at the Montreal University school of industrial design for more than 10 years.
I always tell my students to open their eyes and their ears to everything - arts and culture, economy, politics, etc.
This help you to make links in your mind and find your way to be a good creator.
The positive is related to the the act of searching and finding solutions which could be extremely pleasant and exciting. On the other side it is a 24 hour passion. My wife is sometimes asking where is the«off» swicht ?
Right now we are still developping a contemporary door system made from aluminium. Opposing to what's on the market, it is very flexible and it became some sort of a creative platform for interior designers and architects.
The name of the company we recently started in order to manufacture and commercialize the concept is carrying well this idea : Sesame creative doors.
