With a design background firmly rooted in luxury fashion – from creating an exquisite handbag for accessories experts Chanel, through to a kitsch picnic set for leather goods industry-leader Hermes –, FX Balléry knows a thing or two about delicacy, proportions and elegance when it comes to creating lustworthy products. A graduate from the Royal College of Art in London, Balléry has since won a number of esteemed awards, lauding his eye for detail. His roster of impressive collaborations with other pioneering names in the industry include, among others, Issey Miyake and Yves Saint Laurent.
Returning to his hometown, all the while foraying into product, furniture, packaging, interior and industrial design, Balléry now runs his Parisian studio, FX Balléry Design, from which he continues to design products with an understated elegance and subtle prowess.
