Numéro111 and Michel then decided to develop the Clyde range, taking as a starting point its essential characteristics – the brass-coated or black lacquered steel structure with its V-shaped supports and the way in which the tops are superposed. And so two new pieces were born: a bookcase and a multi-use low unit (low bookcase, low open sideboard, TV,…).
Numéro111 is composed of three separate individuals, Sophie Françon, Jennifer Julien and Grégory Peyrache.
Childhood friends from St-Etienne, the trio studied separately – at the Ecole supérieure d’Art et de Design de Saint-Etienne and the Ecole nationale supérieure d’Architecture de Saint-Etienne – then embarked on solo apprenticeships before coming together again to found Numéro111 in 2010.
They proclaim a global dialogue-based approach which is not limited to a single scale or discipline. The team comes together to work on a variety of projects in the fields of objects, furniture, architecture, interior design and scenography.
Appreciative of forms and materials, Numéro111 questions and invites, through its creations, a reflection on use which arises from the three distinct characters’ transversal view of our daily lives.
