Be AWARE. A history of women artists
matali crasset trained as an industrial designer. In the early 2000s, she founded matali crasset productions. She considers design as a form of research. Her methodology is driven by the observation of daily practices and questioning the principles that govern rules and organisation. Each encounter defines a new territory of action. She gathers people from various domains who usually doesn’t collaborate: from arts and craft to contemporary art (Vent des Forêts, France), from the textile industry to fair trade and creates projects ranging from scenography, production of furniture, architecture to graphic design while also collaborating with artists (Peter Halley), emerging designers and public institutions.
