2Modern is so pleased to announce yet another designer who has come aboard this summer: François Chambard of UM Project. "UM" stands for "user" and "maker" and François' philosophies about creating furniture fit ours to a "T". He believes in connecting the person making the product with the person who will be using it, and considers it a value when someone knows the background of his pieces before they buy them. We do, too!
We just love all the simple, fresh shapes of UM Project, as well as all the fun colors that pop up in unexpected places. His pieces have a light-hearted, funness to them, and we enjoy that they can also be taken very seriously because they are all handmade of the highest quality. François finds inspiration for his work from all sorts of sources, from designers of old to current designers to even the materials themselves. We sat down with him to ask him about his inspiration, how he got into furniture design and what UM Project's future plans are!
