Born in 1967, Patrick Jouin is a designer who graduated from the École nationale supérieure de création industrielle. He has worked on exceptional projects for Pedrali, FIAM, Cassina, Alki, Leucos, Alessi, Puiforcat, JCDecaux and Fermob. His handwriting, his perception of craftsmanship and drawing, can be found in every one of his projects, from publishing design to urban furniture for the future stations of the Grand Paris Express.
The career of Patrick Jouin and his design studio, Patrick Jouin iD, was recognized by a monographic exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in 2009, and honored with the Compasso d'Oro award for the PastaPot Alessi. Several of his creations have entered the permanent collections of museums, notably the "Solid" collection at MOMA, which in 2004 was the first series of 1:1 furniture produced using 3D printing technologies.
The understanding of space and change of scale are equally inspiring for the designer, who is also involved in interior architecture projects with his partner Sanjit Manku, within the Jouin Manku agency founded in 2006. Together, they have designed spaces for chef Alain Ducasse's restaurants, the flagships of jeweller Van Cleef & Arpels, the La Mamounia hotel, and the Air France lounge at Paris-Charles de Gaulle 2F airport.
