Constance Guisset

Constance Guisset

The French designer was born in 1976 in the Paris region. She first studied in a completely different field before turning to a designer career. She graduated at the "Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle (ENSCI)", in Paris. She obtained her degree in 2007 and, one year later, earned the Grand Prix du Design de la Ville de Paris in 2008. Her name appeared on Maison & Objet's top ten designers of the year in 2010.

In 2009, Constance Guisset founded her own design office, which today features a team of designers and architects, and which specializes in product design, interior design and scenography. The Paris-based design studio pursues the creation of lighting installations and animated objects which create illusions and always inspire with stunning details. Constance Guisset's works were presented to the public for the first time at an exhibition in the Chapelle des Cavairiennes, in the French "Pays de Mayenne" in May 2012. Constance Guisset works with many local and international brands, such as Moustache, Petite Friture and Louis Vuitton.

One of the most famous creations by the French designer is the Vertigo pendant light for the Petite Friture brand. It is made of iron, glass fibre and polyurethane, and seems incredibly lightweight. It slightly moves when there is an air draft and produces wonderful shadow effects onto the walls when the light is on. She also designed the Loop collection for Fabbian.
